When God begins a work, He always completes it. When He calls you, He will not leave you behind but He will reach His goal with you. I sing to this God to give Him the glory for what He has done in my life and for the influence He has on me. No man can change a man but Jesus Christ alone!
The time of miracles is not over, the same Jesus who walked with Peter is still with us. Satan cannot take that away from us.
When you say "brother" to a person, it means he is really yours. We are brothers and sisters but always in Christ because He unites us. We see in the Bible brothers and sisters in Christ, but even today we must see brothers and sisters in Christ. If you are really a brother or sister in Christ, who do you walk with? And how do you walk? We must understand this. We must be partakers of the divine nature of God. "... for he who eats and drinks without discerning the body of the Lord, eats and drinks a judgment against himself. For this reason there are many who are sick and infirm among you, and many have died. (1 Corinthians 11:29-30) Habits are not the things of Christians. You say you are a brother but you put brakes on with your brothers and with your sisters. We need the Jesus of the Bible. You only have to give your brother your hand and follow the steps of God. If he does not follow the rhythm, he will let go of your hand. You, do not judge, do not condemn, but follow the step.
We are not from this world, we have received a heavenly call. Our concerns are not the things of this world but the things of Heaven.
To be a prisoner of the Lord, you must truly love the Lord. God has called you to heavenly things. I must put my energy into eternal things, not temporal things.
The God we serve is alive! He knows your heart, cling to Him! Our God provides for all our needs. Have faith in God. No matter what the situation, your place is in God's house. Don't be carnal anymore but understand the Will of God. "(Hebrews 10:25) No matter what others think of me, I want to praise my God. When the disciples were beaten and forbidden to preach, they went to their own and prayed together: God came down. We are the ones who must cry for others. God has called us to this. Jesus Himself was born and lived for others, for us. When we were living like dogs, Jesus died for us, so how can we look at others? "Why do you see the mote that is in your brother's eye and not the beam that is in your own eye? (Matthew 7:3) Before you pass judgment on your brother, remember where you came from! "For you will be judged with the judgment you judge with, and you will be measured with the measure you measure with." (Matthew 7:2) Therefore be merciful. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!" (Matthew 5: 7) We don't need religion but we need to be in reality. People have not understood what salvation is. "For the law has brought nothing to perfection" (Hebrews 7:19)
Satan plays with your mind and with you. He has you by the pride. Everyone has his pride, if you touch that then you will see the person who will be transformed. When pride comes, God is no longer there. Satan wanted to do the same thing with Jesus, "I will give you all this power and the glory of these kingdoms; for it has been given to me, and I give it to whomever I want." (Luke 4:6) All these things happen in the head. That's where Satan works. God wants to touch your heart. The knowledge that comes from God leads you to humility, never to pride. When God comes to you to reveal you, it breaks you because you recognize the greatness and power of God. God showed power to Moses but Moses remained humble. If God shows you that the person in front of you does not love you, how are you going to act towards him? Jesus knew very well that Judas was the son of perdition, but Jesus loved Judas. God cannot sanctify a demon. A demon is a son of perdition. But when God sanctifies, it is because He wants to dwell in you. God cannot dwell in the son of perdition.
In this "Sanctify them", Judas is no longer there. A demon cannot be sanctified or even receive revelation. Cain, the son of perdition, did not receive the revelation of the pleasing offering to God. You cannot receive the revelation if you are not a son of God. "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding, and revealed them to children. (Matthew 11:25)
There was a change in the law because no one could be a priest unless he was from the tribe of Levi. It is no longer the order of Aaron but the order of Melchizedek, a descendant of the tribe of Judah.
It was Moses who had received the vision of what God wanted, and it was Moses who established Aaron as high priest according to what God had told him. The Israelites thought it would always be like that. But God gave the law for a time. Never lock God into a system. When David brought the ark back, Uzzah put his hand on the ark and died. Uzzah was not a Levite, but in the New Covenant things are different. God never called Aaron "my son" but Jesus was called my son. When we speak of Melchizedek, we say that He has no beginning and no end.
Jesus had a father and a mother. Jesus has a genealogy, Son of David. This is God Himself. Jesus, high priest according to the order of Melchizedek. So Jesus is God.
As long as we stay on the Word, men will leave us but God will be with us. "If God is for us, who will be against us? (Romans 8:31)
They have gone so far, that God has sworn that they will not enter into rest. These are not Gentiles.
You must meet the One who calls you because then you become unstoppable. We are talking about the people of Israel. God knew that there would be trials, that they would have to fight. God had already warned. God always warns so that your faith does not fail, but the problem is that you do not listen. There is a purpose for which God brought you out. It is necessary to have heard the Voice of the One who brought you out. And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people" (Revelation 18:4). We must hear the Voice of God. God brought His people out of Egypt so why did He swear on them? What happened in the meantime?
Hebrews 3:11 and 14-17
Moses was a true prophet. For 40 years, God endured them. 40 years is a generation. Moses led them on the path God had laid out.
Look at the relationship between Moses, the Pharisees and Christ. They walked with Moses but they did not listen to what Moses said. They had to obey the Word but they had their own interpretations. God led them through the wilderness, they mourned but God told them that He would bring them into the land. When they got to the promised land, they were afraid but God had already spoken: "I came down to deliver him out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring him up out of that land into a good and large country, into a land flowing with milk and honey, into the places where the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites live." (Exodus 3:8)
We think we are leading the Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, but it is God who leads the Bride of Christ. The Bride will not come out of the Message. The Message will never make you the Bride. The Bride has always been the Bride because She was in Christ. The people of Israel thought they were sure to get in because they were following Moses, but listen instead to what Moses says.
"Who do they say that I am, the Son of Man? (Matthew 16:13) That is the problem, who is this Jesus! 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 who is in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:16-18) When we speak of the Church, we are speaking of the Body of Christ, that is, the Bride of Christ. It is God who builds and therefore He takes care of it. There is no preacher who cannot make you the Bride of Christ. We are in the time of preparation. But who is going to prepare? Is a bride going to prepare for marriage without knowing her husband? The Bride must know her Bridegroom.
God's purpose was to bring them into the land, but He warned that there would be obstacles. The new man that was created was not created by a man. The Holy Spirit cannot lead you to a man but always to the Word. The Holy Spirit always leads you to the Truth. "I am the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6)
Do not stay in your thoughts but listen to what God says. Only the seed of Abraham will enter. God's purpose was to bring them in, but when faced with the land, they found themselves unworthy. God had not already given the victory on the way, but in front of the sons of Anak, they were afraid. They showed that they were not sons of Abraham. There were many of them, they discouraged the people but there were Joshua and Caleb. You can doubt the Word but there will always be witnesses to say that the Word of God is the Truth. They did not go in because of unbelief in the Word of God. "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." (Hebrews 13:8) When you are unbelieving, you do not believe the Word of God.
Jesus is coming back soon. He has gone to prepare a place for us. But whose? "...that he may present the church glorious, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish." (Ephesians 5:27) As Eve was in Adam, the Bride was in Christ. Now if Christ is the Word of God, then we are the Word. We no longer need revelation but we need Christ to speak to us. When we are in the Body of Christ, we are certain to be the Bride. To know that I am the Bride of Christ, I must be baptized in the Holy Spirit. My objective, my goal is to have the Holy Spirit. I am in my Bridegroom, I need to hear my Bridegroom and talk to my Bridegroom.
When you have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the promises are yours because you are in the Body of Christ. Let's stay in His Kingdom.
