Lessons in Love: Lesson Twelve

REMAIN CONNECTED!

As you start and continue to manifest the fruit, gifts and blessings in your life and in the lives of others. Always keep in remembrance the source of this power.

I hope and pray, Jesus never has to say this to you and I…

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Rev 2:4

I hope and pray that we always know:

  • We are not GOD.
  • We are not the POWER.
  • We are not the VINE OWNER.
  • We are not the VINE.
  • We are not the FRUIT.
  • We are not the GIFT giver.

WE ARE HIS BRANCH… if we let Him!

Without GOD we can do nothing. But with GOD we can do all things! All we can be is a conduit for His power to flow through us like a branch:

Jesus says: I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. (The answer to how He purgeth branches to produce more fruit is in this next verse.) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you.

As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:1-6

I also see you and I are like an electric cable with a plug one end and a bulb the other. The plug, cable and bulb does not provide the power or the light.

The light is only produced when the socket is plugged in, and turned on to the power source. This power then flows to the bulb to give light. The only thing you need to do is to remain plugged in and switched on to the power source. And to be less resistant and more conductive to The Word of God, for His power to flow through you. To shine His light. That, GOD be glorified.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority. READ Matt 7:21-29

Enjoy the journey…

Enjoy your journey of walking this life in the Spirit of His love, joy, and peace. And, I sincerely look forward to meeting you one day, or in a thousand years from now in heaven!

If you would like to share a testimony, please contact me at: stuart@umbrellarz.com God bless you!

P.S. You have been sent this in His love. And, I pray as you have read this you have personally received from God, His heart, His love, His compassion, His desire for you to choose to live the abundant life with Him.

As Jesus prayed for His Disciples, He also prayed just for you: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. John 17:20

Brothers and sisters, I encourage you to read aloud John 17 in the KJV. The prayer of Jesus that we be united in Him and Him in us. That we be moved by the compassion of His love he has for us. And, for all others.

SALVATION TODAY!

Jesus Christ Says: I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. Luke 15:7

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Luke 15:10

I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Matt 9:13

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. Acts 3:19

God is not looking at how clever you are in worldly knowledge and wisdom. Your status, your personality, your popularity, and your wealth are not important to Him. He will not accept you even on how good you are, because without Jesus Christ, you are not good enough and never will be. As, God looks at the condition of your heart.

The LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1Sam 16:7

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44

The only thing that stands in the way between God and you is you. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Rom 3:23

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isa 53:6

See salvation or saved means more than the forgiveness of your sin.

Through these and many other revelations in the Word of God, I have come to understand God the Father really does love you and me INDIVIDUALLY with all of His Heart as demonstrated with the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

If you cannot quite believe this truth yet; do not let Satan, the devil lie to you. But believe the truth GOD ALMIGHTY really does love you!

And in return His desire is for you to choose to love Him with All your heart, and have a personal relationship with GOD, today, everyday, and forever more.

But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. Deut 4:29

And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them. Deut 11:13-16

And Jesus Christ Says: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mark 12: 30-31

Receive God’s immeasurable love, for today is the day of your salvation.

For God’s Word promises: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Rom 10:9-13

If you choose to speak out “Jesus is now my LORD!” And choose to believe the truth in your heart that GOD The Father raised GOD The Son Jesus Christ from the dead. You are now saved.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptised every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

The Good News (The Gospel)
Jesus Christ Has already paid the price for ALL your sins, past present and future.

It is Satan, the devil, the liar, the deceiver, the accuser, and: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: John 10:10

But Jesus says: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Come with all of your heart to the Lord Jesus. He is not shocked. He knows ALL about you already:

The following may seem foolish, but this is faith. And faith pleases God. Therefore, by saying this prayer from your heart and speaking these words with your mouth the promise is you are saved!

Remember you are speaking directly to God as you speak out loud enough so you can hear yourself say:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I repent of of all the things I have done wrong in your sight, which is called sin.

I thank you Lord Jesus that on the Cross you died as a once and for all sacrifice just for me. And you have now forgiven me of all my sins and you have washed me clean by your precious blood. And, I believe your promise that you remember my sins no more.

And because of the precious price you paid on the cross for me, I now forgive everyone who owes, harmed or wronged me.

I now confess that Jesus is my Lord and Saviour.

I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. And by faith in your word, I receive salvation now. Thank you Jesus for saving me. In Your precious name Lord Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.”

Praying this prayer from your heart means:

  • Jesus was Punished for you to be Forgiven.
  • Jesus was Wounded for you to be Healed.
  • Jesus was made Sin for you to be made Righteous.
  • Jesus suffered Death to give you Eternal Life.
  • Jesus took every Curse for you to have every Blessing.
  • Jesus took on your Poverty for you to share in His Abundance.
  • Jesus took all your Shame for you to have His Glory.
  • Jesus suffered Rejection for you are now Accepted!

When GOD looks at you from now on. He doesn’t see your sin but sees His Son!

As Jesus says: This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Heb 10:16-17

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Eph 2:13

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Eph 2:7-8

Now receive His POWER!

Because you now have Jesus Christ as Lord. Receive now the power of The Holy Spirit through prayer:

“Dear Father God, I surrender to you completely. I recognise my need for your power to live the Christian life. I’m hungry for you!

Please baptise me in Your Holy Spirit! By faith, I receive now the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I take it. It’s mine in Jesus’ name!

Father God, thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit! Holy Spirit, thank you for coming. You are welcome in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”

Say thank you to God at tell Him how much you love Him!

Now let us ask for the gift of tongues:

“Father God, Thank you for baptising me in The Holy Spirit! I’m so grateful you have given me this wonderful gift. Please help me to walk in all of His benefits.

Through speaking in tongues I can draw on the power You’ve placed within me: for rest and refreshing for building my faith and keeping myself in your love and for revelation knowledge as interpretation comes.

I am a believer! Your word says ‘These signs shall follow them that believe… they shall speak with new tongues, by faith, I will speak in tongues from this day forward, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen”

Praise God in your own language and then cooperate with the Holy Spirit and start speaking in tongues.

“Dear Father God, I pray for The Holy Spirit to reveal to me the truth as I ponder and meditate The Word of God in The Holy Bible. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Continue to give thanks! Be led by the Holy Spirit and find a local church that’s producing good fruit & ask to be fully baptised (completely immersed) in water.

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Eph 3:17-19

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Eph 1:6

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 2 Thess 3:5

Lessons in Love: Lesson Ten

DARKNESS TO LIGHT

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3:19-20

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loveth the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1John 2:15

So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:33

He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. John 12:25

Take Your Spiritual Authority & Responsibility.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:1-2

The best way to resist the devil is to be completely submitted to God. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. Rom 6:19

When the devil tempts you with a counterfeit, deception, or lie. Remember just because the temptation is put into your mind. Does not mean you have yet sinned or it has to stay there.

Do not meditate on it for a second. However, pleasurable it may be to the lust of your flesh. Do not let it conceive to ultimately produce spiritual, emotional and, or physical death.

If you like it you will not reject it. Ask God to show you how much He hates it. However, do not remain focused on that evil thought for it to keep you bound. For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. Prov 23:7

Take your God given authority in the name of Jesus!

Take your God given authority in the name of Jesus!

Take that evil thought and CAST IT OUT. In Jesus’ Name.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2Cor 10:3-6

It is only by meditating day and night on the truth of His word that will set you free, not the counterfeit. As the true promises and blessings in His word will, change your thoughts, change your heart and then produce the fruit of a God given abundant life.

Remember Satan is: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10

And Jesus Christ says: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. James 1:12-16

WHY I HAVE INCLUDED THIS SECTION ON HELL

From the perspective of one day in heaven living in my redeemed glorified body and soul, reunited with His spirit in me. I imagine having a glimpse of hell and seeing many cry out:

“Why Did You Not Warn Me?”

So with the love of GOD I have for you, and with a sense of urgency here is the warning:
God is a God of love and His desire is that no one perish, and that includes you! READ Matt 18:14

God wants you to come to him and have a personal relationship with Him motivated by His immeasurable love for you as demonstrated in His Son Jesus Christ dying on the cross in your place.

Hell was designed only for Satan. But God has given you and me the following choice:

1. To love The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit, The Holy Word of God!

2. Reject one and you reject GOD.

3. Do not be deceived. There is no other choice!

Therefore, you have the free will to choose.
Eternal Life or Eternal Death. Eternity in heaven or Eternity in hell.

Now you have the responsibility to choose. I urge you to make the right choice today. Tomorrow could be too late!

BLESSINGS & PROMISES

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Psalms 139:17-18

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 2Cor 1:20

As a born again believer: Do you really know we have been redeemed from the CURSE of the law.

Which means when you read Deuteronomy 28 you can say “Yes! Amen!” and “Thank You Jesus!” To all the blessings.

And “Thank You Jesus!” that as a born again believer all the curses listed no longer apply to us. Praise God!

Because: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. Galatians 3:13

We encourage you. Choose life and not death, eternity in heaven and not eternity in hell and all the blessings and none of the curses. Then choose wisely and let today be your day of Salvation.

And, be encouraged you do not have to wait until heaven to enjoy the fullness God has for you. He has promised to never leave you nor forsake you. Heb 13:5

Everyday, He has new mercies for you and regardless of how we feel, we are able to say: “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!” Psalms 118:24

As Deuteronomy Chapter 28 Was written to encourage those to start obeying The Word of God. Did you also know as a born again believer that because you have obeyed God’s Word by being saved and know it was everything Jesus did and not what you have done. All the blessings are right now Yes! and Amen!

These words are not from a manipulative money making TV Evangelist as Satan may have led you to believe. These Words are from the Holy Bible. The only condition is that you OBEY God’s Word. And when you have OBEYED by being Born Again, they are now promises to you.

Therefore, we can boldly proclaim:

“Because I have obeyed The Word of God, God has promoted me!

All the blessings are now on me and overtake me because I have obeyed God’s Word!

Blessed I am right now in the city!

Blessed I am right now in the field!

Blessed is the fruit of my body, and the fruit of my ground, and the fruit of my cattle, the increase of my kind, and the flocks of my sheep.

Blessed is my basket and my store.

Blessed I am the moment I come in, and blessed I am the moment I go out.

The LORD has caused my (spiritual) enemies that rise up against me to be smitten before my face: they shall come out against me one way, and flee before me seven ways.

The LORD has already commanded the blessing upon me in my storehouses, and in all that I have and will set my hand to; and he has blessed me in the land which the LORD my God has given to me.

The LORD has established me as a holy people unto himself, as he has promised.

And the LORD has made me plenteous in goods, in the fruit of my body, and in the fruit of my cattle, and in the fruit of my ground, in the land which the LORD has sworn unto my fathers to have given to me.

The LORD has opened unto me his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto my land in season, and has blessed all the work of my hand: so I can lend unto many nations, and do not need to borrow.

And the LORD has made me the head, and not the tail; and I am above only, and I am never beneath; because I obey the LORD my God, according to His Word.”

SUPERNATURAL GIFTS

How do the supernatural gifts of The Holy Spirit manifest?

1. Believe the Word of God

Jesus said to his disciples if you have seen me you have seen the Father. But, Philip soon after, not believing what Jesus had said says “Show us the Father!” READ John 14:9

Thomas would not believe the news of Jesus being raised from the dead unless he could SEE and FEEL.

The other disciples therefore said unto him, we have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. John 20:25

Later when Jesus was physically next to Thomas, Jesus says: Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. John 20:27-29

And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. Mark 16:20

And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18

How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation. Daniel 4:3

The following is a true story recorded in John 4:46-52

There was a nobleman who had a need that his rank and position could not solve. A sick son at the point of death. But heard news about Jesus and that he was about 16 miles away. And by faith went to find Jesus. And when he found Jesus he pleaded with Jesus to go to his son to heal him, for he was about to die. And Jesus said: Unless you SEE you will not BELIEVE!

The man pleaded again saying the same thing for Jesus to go to his dying child. Then, Jesus spoke these Words: Go thy way; thy son liveth.

And the man BELIEVED THE WORD and went his way. And on the way he heard the good news from his servants “Thy son liveth.”

What do you think would have happened if this man with his rank and position who initially stepped out in faith by going out to find Jesus but refused to accept just the ‘Words of Jesus’ as this man was pleading for Jesus to physically go to his son who was at the point of death?

Where is your faith? Do you need to see or feel something before you believe or will you believe and accept the true and faithful Word of GOD for your need, or that of your loved one today!

See some initially step out by faith seeking a miracle. But, believe the miracle is going to happen by how they perceive it, what they think, see and feel. When all they need to do is to put their complete trust in the true and faithful Word of God.

2. Receive the promised gift of The Holy Spirit

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? READ Matt 7:11

The purpose of the supernatural spiritual gifts from God is to flow from The Holy Spirit in us, to the benefit of others. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. 1Cor 14:12

3. Receive the promised gift of His calling

And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 1Cor 12:28

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Eph 4:11-12

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. Rom 12:6-8

Another example is the true story of the Roman centurion, who pleaded with Jesus that his servant was so sick he was lying down at home grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but Speak The Word Only, and my servant shall be healed. Jesus was surprised at the faith of the centurion because the Centurion understood the authority and power of the spoken word he had as a Centurion; and as Jesus had as LORD. READ Matt 8:5-10

4. Start exercising your spiritual gifts

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues. 1 Cor 12:8-10

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. 1 Cor 12:31

All gifts are to be ministered in the spiritual fruit of God’s immeasurable love.

From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Eph 4:16

Speak Out Your Personal Professions Today!

This may seem foolish but it works because you are trusting His way and not your way: And His ways are better than your ways and his thoughts are better than your thoughts!

So speak out to God loud enough so you can hear yourself talk:

“Thank you Jesus Christ for your word confirms with the person of The Holy Spirit in me that I desire the manifestation of the God given gifts to edify the body of Christ:

I pray, I be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. And ask the Holy Spirit to confirm which part I serve in the body of Christ either as an apostle, prophet, minister, evangelist, pastor, teacher, helper, in government, a leader, one who encourages, or one who shows mercy with cheerfulness, or one who gives with simplicity.

And thank you Jesus that within my born again spirit I desire the best gifts so I can witness to others in Your love:

Your word of wisdom to give the best course of action for success.

Your word of knowledge to reveal true and relevant information which was hidden.

Your gift of faith for a specific anointing for a specific supernatural need.

Your gifts of healing of God’s supernatural power against sickness.

Your working of miracles of immediate supernatural creation and restoration.

Your gift of prophecy to give a true revelation that encourages all believers in the Church where I worship.

Your discerning of spirits. To enable me to know the difference between a spiritual truth from heaven or a spiritual lie from hell.

Your gift of having different kinds of tongues to edify the church.

Your gift of interpretation of tongues to bring fruitful understanding of a prophecy spoken in an unknown language.

Thank You Lord Jesus. Your word is true and faithful. I therefore acknowledge all the things in You, are right now living in me. That the manifestation from the supernatural to the natural has started working. In Your Name Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”

GOOD FRUIT GLORIFIES GOD

Gifts received are free and instant, but fruit takes time to produce.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gal 5:22-23

Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15:8

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. Philip 1:11

The Fruit of Love

I believe my natural father did the best he could with the harsh upbringing he had experienced.

Looking back to my family home, I could recall my natural father’s impatience and anger especially after drinking alcohol. And, remember he did love us the best he knew how, but did not show many signs of a love or affection towards my mum, brother and I.

I believe at an early age from watching how my father responded to my older brother, I didn’t want to do the things my brother did, so that I would not be treated the same way.

I therefore learnt as a toddler to respond to my father out of fear. I was more focused on not doing the wrong things so that he would not be angry with me than doing the right thing. So I ended up doing many wrong things.

I remember through my early teens desperately wanting my father to be proud of me, constantly seeking his approval.

However, when I did something right I was called a “Smart Arse.” And, when I did something wrong I was called “Stupid.”

I was often referred to as the black sheep of the family and on one occasion I was told I was a mistake.

I remember one day my father said to me “A hundred percent for trying, but not getting anywhere!” And actually, believed this to be a compliment for at least he could see I was trying.

During a time of four bereavements in four years of my mum dying of cancer; my Granny dying of old age; my father dying of a heart attack; and my sister committing suicide.

I was completely broken.

During this time, I heard a Christian gospel message of salvation. I prayed the salvation prayer and gave my life to Jesus the best way I knew how. I struggled for years as I saw my supernatural Father God the same way I saw my natural father. I focused on not doing the wrong things because of the fear of His judgement if I got it wrong. I believed Father God was constantly saying to me “Hundred percent for trying but you don’t get anywhere!”

I continuously felt a failure as I kept doing those things, I constantly focused on not doing!

That’s until I received a revelation of God The Father’s immeasurable love towards me through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, just for me. Because even I could qualify as a ‘whosoever’. READ John 3:16

And, hand on heart, I know I have completely forgiven my natural father, because my supernatural heavenly Father first forgave me!

Just ask Him for a personal revelation with the following prayer:

“Dear Heavenly Father, please reveal your love to me in a personal way as I choose to open the eyes and ears of my heart to you; to receive a word or picture from heaven confirmed in your word The Holy Bible. And for you to show me as you see me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. Psalms 139:17-18

See human love will at some point be sensual, impatient, rude, lustful, envious, big-headed, boastful, improper, self-seeking, keeps records of wrongs, easily angered, thinking evil thoughts, dishonest, revengeful, deceitful, intolerant, unfaithful, hopeless, temporary and resentful.

Human love is based on emotions which come and go.
Human love will always fail!
Human love will at some point leave you feeling frustrated, worn out, and burnt out.

But God’s love is always sacrificial, patient, kind; friendly, modest, humble, appropriate, generous, calm, thinking good thoughts; honest, truthful; tolerant, faithful, hopeful, enduring, and forgiving and forgetting all mistakes.

God’s love never fails!

When you know you have God’s immeasurable love on the inside of you. To love others is no longer based on an emotion but a decision to love and keep on loving from your heart. And, as you give God’s love to others, He always fills you back up to over flowing. God is love and His love will never run out.

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1John 4:16

Therefore, God’s love was demonstrated through Jesus Christ on the cross. And, The Holy Spirit will be our teacher and guide, working in us, from inside out. If we choose to cooperate with Him.

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Rom 5:5

Jesus says: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5

For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. Rom 11:16

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Rom 6:22

Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness; Being enriched in everything to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. 2Cor 9:10-11

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Col 1:10

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:8

Speak out your personal professions today!

So speak out to God loud enough so you can hear yourself talk:

This may seem foolish but it works because you are trusting His way and not your way: And His ways are better than your ways and his thoughts are better than your thoughts!

“Thank you Jesus Christ for your word confirms with the person of The Holy Spirit in me that I have all the fruit living on the inside of me of:

LOVE: Gods immeasurable sacrificial love as demonstrated by Jesus on the cross! As His love within me fills me inside out to love my neighbour as God continues to supply an overflow of His love through me.

JOY: The unspeakable joy of the Lord which is my inner strength. Serving God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things. As His joy remains in me and my joy is full. With His beauty instead of my ashes. With His oil of joy instead of my mourning. Wearing His garment of praise instead of my spirit of heaviness. To become a tree of righteousness, planted by the LORD, that God be glorified.

PEACE: His peace to calm any storm! Not the world’s meaning of peace. But peace that will never trouble my heart, neither will it be afraid. For I understand to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

PATIENCE: His patience to keep going until that, after I have done the will of God, I will receive the promise.

GENTLENESS: His gentleness during harshness because God has given me the shield of His salvation: and His right hand has held me up, and God’s gentleness has made me great.

GOODNESS: And I rejoice in His abundant and great goodness that for sure His goodness, His mercy and His loving-kindness shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

And God would count me worthy of His calling for my life, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of His faith with His power That your name Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in me, and me in Him, according to His amazing grace.

FAITH: Having His faith in me through hearing the word of God. I do not stagger at the promises of God through the unbelief of common-sense knowledge which is temporary and unreliable; but by faith in His word that is eternal, true and faithful. being strong in faith, giving glory to God; to boldly speak His word whole heartedly to cause my impossible to be made possible being full of His faith and His power, to do great wonders and miracles as nothing is impossible to God.

MEEKNESS: His meekness not to speak evil of any man but gentle unto all men. And by instructing those that oppose themselves; that God may give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth in His Word.

TEMPERANCE: His temperance, not to overreact. But to be patient and calm, trusting in the LORD.

Thank You Lord Jesus. Your word is true and faithful. I therefore acknowledge all the things in you, are right now living in me. That the manifestation from the supernatural to the natural has started working. In your Name LORD Jesus. Amen.”

Some examples to change from what you say, to Gods way:

“I can’t SEE any difference BUT the word of God which is true and faithful says ….”

“The doctor TOLD me a bad report BUT the word of God which is true and faithful says….”

“I FEEL ……… BUT the word of God which is true and faithful says ….”

On one occasion in prayer God spoke to me by His Spirit saying “I love you just as you are!” And, another occasion He said “I know you love me.” His desire within me wants you to know, God Almighty loves you too.

ACKNOWLEDGE & PROFESS

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6

Jesus The High Priest of Our Profession

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. Heb 3:1

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Heb 4:14

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised). Heb 10:23

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Rom 10:10

Speak Out Your Personal Professions Today!

This may seem foolish, but it works because you are trusting His way and not your way: And His ways are better than your ways and His thoughts are better than your thoughts!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isa 55:8-9

So, speak out to God loud enough so you can hear yourself talk!

“Thank you Jesus Christ for your Word confirms with the person of The Holy Spirit living on the inside of me that: God really does love me with His supernatural immeasurable love as demonstrated when Jesus Christ chose to take my place on the cross, and know that he accepts and loves me just as I am. Because Jesus says: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Eph 1:6

I thank you Father God for the promised gift of The Holy Spirit in me, as my Wonderful Counsellor and Comforter. Who shall teach me all things and bring God’s Word to remembrance and show me things to come, as a helpful warning of things to avoid and as a glorious guide.

As it is written: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13

And where it is also written: Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. Isa 42:9

I also acknowledge and give you thanks for the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead is right now living in me.

And, with the gift of speaking in a heavenly language I have ‘the gift of tongues’ of being able to talk directly to God in praise and worship. To speak the mysteries of God and ask for the interpretation. And, to edify my faith and build myself up in the Lord.

Thank You Lord Jesus. Your word is true and faithful. I therefore acknowledge all the things in you, are right now living in me. That the manifestation from the supernatural to the natural has started working. In your name LORD Jesus Christ. Amen.”

Lessons in Love: Lesson Five

Are You Born Again?

If the answer is a confident yes, then read on. If it’s a no, maybe, not sure, or I think so. Then read the last two chapters of this book on salvation and remain connected.

As a born-again believer I struggled with the following scripture because I did not feel like a new creature, and old things did not seem to pass away, and nothing much seemed new!

Until I came across the following revelations in The Word of God and with this teaching…

SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY

As a born-again believer did you know you are made up of three parts being spirit, soul and body.

Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Cor 5:17

Most of us are aware of our body and soul. For we know our body is simply the physical structure, including the bones, flesh, and organs.

And that our soul is our emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, including our personality. But where does our spirit come from?

God formed the BODY of man from the dust of the ground, and breathed His SPIRIT into man and man became a living SOUL. READ Gen 2:7

And because our spirit was corrupted by sin: Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. Eph 2:2- 3

But you: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1Peter 1:23

The day you were born again. The Holy Spirit came to live on the inside of you, in your belly!

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. Eph 1:13

The Holy Spirit in you, is sealed, which means there is nothing you can do or have done to corrupt Him.

However, we can grieve The Holy Spirit when he draws us to Himself and we reject Him. Or when he prompts, leads or guide us to do something and out of a fear of man or selfishness, we ignore Him and do not do the good thing He has asked us to do and go our own way.

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Eph 4:30

It is The Holy Spirit in you that is a new creature. The ‘Old Man’ or ‘spirit of man’ has passed away (died) The ‘New Man’ The Holy Spirit in you is new and completely sealed. So your soul and body can never corrupt The Holy Spirit inside of you.

And, even though we can grieve Him by rejecting His prompting, leading and guiding to do good. He has promised to never leave you, nor forsake you. READ Heb 13:5

This human spirit referred to as ‘The Old Man’ is explained in this verse: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Rom 6:6

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Eph 4:22-24

Stop using your human faith, which profits nothing. And start using the supernatural faith of God which comes alive by hearing and speaking His Word.

Therefore, as we renew our minds by speaking out The Word of God because faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. READ Rom 10:17

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6

And by acknowledging every good thing in ‘The Holy Spirit’ in us. That is in Christ Jesus. As they are of the one and same Spirit. This becomes effectual (starts working) from inside out!

As Jesus Christ is (right now), so are we in this world. READ 1John 4:17

This includes: The immeasurable Love of God, because God is love, and His love is right now living on the inside of you!

The same resurrection power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead now lives on the inside of you.

The same creative power that hovered over the waters and created the heavens and the earth now lives on the inside of you.

The mind of Christ that knows all things; now lives on the inside of you. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1Cor 2:16

All the fruit of The Holy Spirit: Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15-8

All the gifts of The Holy Spirit are available on the inside of you: But covet earnestly the best gifts: READ 1Cor 12:31

All the promises and blessings of GOD are already Yes, and Amen on the inside of you: For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 2Cor 1:20

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2Cor 7:1

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thess 5:23

I believe if we can grieve The Holy Spirit we can also do what is right and good to PLEASE HIM…

Holy Spirt what would you love you and me to do today that pleases you?

Lessons in Love: Lesson Four

SUPERNATURAL SWORD

All scriptures are revealed by The Holy Spirit.

When we speak The Holy Word of God with the Spirit of God we have a sword. The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Eph 6:17

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:12

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

This supernatural sword can go where your five senses of see, hear, touch, taste and smell cannot go.

It is only by the reflection of the spiritual mirror of the word of God in The Holy Bible that reveals the answers to the thoughts and intentions of our own hearts. READ James 1:23-25

It is impossible for us to know our spirit or the Spirit of God in our own mind and soul with just our five senses of see, hear, feel, taste and smell. READ 1Cor 2:14

It can never be revealed by our own genetic inheritance, popularity, power, level of intelligence, amount of worldly knowledge, human wisdom, self-will, physical emotions, any amount of money, or anything you have done!

Maybe, for various reasons, you have decided in your heart to set your own rules and regulations about how to live, and how others should live by your rules. READ Matt 26:3-4

Maybe, your heart is like the time when Jesus was being crucified on the cross along with two others who were also being crucified. One was angry and mocked Jesus and the other was humble and respected Jesus. READ Luke 23:39-43

Maybe, your heart is like Paul who believed he was doing right in the sight of God by signing the death warrants of Christians. And, was shocked when God revealed himself as Jesus Christ. READ Acts 22:5-10

Or similarly like the Roman soldier who was involved with the crucifixion of Jesus and observed that ‘Jesus truly was the Son of God. READ Matt 27:54

Or maybe, your heart is like one of the twelve disciples whom out of the abundance of their carnal hearts manifested deception, greed, betrayal, doubt, unbelief, impulsiveness, denial, and many others.

Who knows?
You can’t physically know if you are deceived or not. That’s why it is called deception!

This is why you need the spiritual mirror of The Word of God; the free gift of Salvation; and the person of The Holy Spirit to help you.

What does a Christian look and act like?

Please let me ask you: When you think of a Christian, what do you see?

Do you see a generous person walking in the abundance of love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance, righteousness and truth? With forgiveness, divine health, abundant and eternal life, living in God’s acceptance and manifesting the glory of God?

The word says: This is the manifesting fruit, gifts and blessings of walking in the born-again Spirit of God available to you and me for today!

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:20

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:14-16

How would you like to receive this light with all the fullness of God and start your walk with Him in His Spirit today, every day, and forever?

And have inside access to all the gifts including His wisdom, divine healing, true future knowledge of things to come. And an abundant supply of His pure true love because ‘God is love’. With unspeakable joy and His peace that surpasses all understanding.

It’s not too good to be true. It’s better than good and it is the gospel truth. It’s Good news!

The knowledge of His Word will enable you to know personal hidden secrets about the kingdom of God. And, to let His power flow through you to enable the broken-hearted to be restored, loved and accepted; for the blind to see; the lame to walk; the ashamed cleansed; the deaf to hear; the dead to be raised; and for the poor to hear the good news and receive a practical blessing; and so much more!

Lessons in Love: Lesson Three

FAITH COMES BY HEARING

The faith of God is alive in The Word of God which comes by hearing the message of the Gospel to salvation from the spoken word of God. Whether spoken verbally by yourself or from a Christian believer.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Rom 10:17

Once born again by the Spirit of God, the faith of Jesus that now lives on the inside of you, starts working by acknowledging and speaking with your mouth, and once established, speaking from your heart, what is inside you, which is in Christ Jesus!

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6

As a born-again believer all the things in Christ Jesus are right now living on the inside of you.

If this is true, then where are all the fruit, gifts and blessings?

Because you cannot physically see, hear, feel, taste or smell them does not mean they are not really there.

The fruit, gifts and blessings are manifested by speaking His Words without wavering. Which means, keep speaking the promises of His word daily. READ Heb 10:23

Acknowledge, and speak out The Word of God with God’s faith wrapped in His word to produce the fruit, gifts and blessings which are in The Holy Spirit who is alive on the inside of you.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:6-8

And as you renew your mind and become single minded on The Word of God they will manifest in your heart.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:1-2

The word ‘transform’ is used to describe the change like an earth-bound caterpillar to a heaven bound butterfly.

And, as a deep well of living waters, The Holy Spirit in you, will flow up to your heart and will manifest like a flowing of many rivers to your five senses in and through your body, overflowing, for you to be blessed, and to be a blessing to others!

He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38
