PART ONE

One of the many things that I love about the man, Jesus, was His boldness. No matter where He was, no matter who He was around, no matter, period, He was bold in His beliefs.  Not too many folks agreed with Him, yet, His beliefs remained the same.  He wasn’t liked by too many folks, but His beliefs remained the same. His beliefs brought on Him many uncomfortable happenings, including His crucifixion. Although, it was God’s plan for the crucifixion, Jesus HAD to believe whatever His beliefs were, which we know were God’s Truths, in order to make it possible for ALL mankind to come into being the person that they were created to be.

One thing, among many, that we MUST get understanding to is that the faith that is in us is HIS FAITH!!  We say that we believe God’s written Word and a lot of us do. But, when it comes to telling us things that the carnal mind says “uh-oh, that’s not for you, that was for Jesus”, some tend to believe it.  It seems to be that BOLDNESS comes strong about things we are being deceived about.  Strange isn’t it?

For instance, when I was first introduced to the fact that we do not have to see physical death, that BOLDNESS jumped up and said, “that’s not true. EVERYONE has to see death”.  Talk about BOLDNESS!!  I would come up with all the “normal” thoughts:  “well everyone IS dieing; well we HAVE to die if we are to ever go to heaven; you know what, I think the people who say this is in to some of that metaphyscial stuff”!!  Yeah, and I was BOLD to say so.  But, through the years I have learned that we can learn from ALL things. Remember when the church system use to tell us, “you stay away from metaphysical reading and all that Eastern stuff?”  And if we saw anyone sneaking a peak into any of that, we were quick to tell them that they would be led into false doctrine. Boy, I’m glad that those days are gone. But, speak of BOLDNESS, it was surely there to tell others not to indulge.

Lately, Father has been speaking to me about BOLDNESS. The kind of BOLDNESS that will either get us to the place of believing Truth, or, keep us from the Truth. And as a starter, we need to see a pattern that was laid out in plain words to us.

Heb.6:1-3, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.  And this will we do, if God permit.”

Notice, we ARE TO LEAVE THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST!   Wow!  We’re to forget about Christ?  No, that isn’t what is being said here. We are to leave THE DOCTRINE, not Christ. We are to allow Christ to come forth… to manifest as a living, being, operating, real person and life in this world. We’ve been preached to, enough about the doctrine; now, it is the person, the life that we are to be a part of, to come forth and be seen. Do we believe Jesus’ words, “I am the Christ”?  “When you see me, you’ve seen the Father?”  Most of the world does believe that He was. But, most of the world does not believe that the same is true of themselves. But, remember, “God is no respecter of persons”. That includes you and me. We ARE and have ALWAYS BEEN HIS CHRIST, His Life. We just weren’t always aware of it. And He will be worked out from within those who don’t believe this, into the life of each person, one way or another, whether here or on the other side. ALL will come to know this Truth.

Of course, this is “old news” to some of us. “Good news”, but still “old news.”  And there are those who have received the revelation of this, but will not allow the manifesting of it, because of what people will say… people who haven’t received this revelation, for one reason or another.

But, what I want to talk about, is this. WITHOUT BOLDNESS, FAITH IS NOT BEING ALLOWED TO MANIFEST. There are some who will disagree with this, but that’s OK.  Father has ALWAYS had me to keep my eyes on the Pattern that He set, and without focusing on that Pattern, we cannot manifest His Truths. I remember when Father opened my understanding to this scripture:

2Thessalonians 2, “vs 1-4, Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken IN MIND, or be troubled neither by SPIRIT, not by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no MAN deceive you by ANY MEANS: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition:  who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

This word “coming” actually means “PRESENCE”, His Presence.  And notice where all this “being shaken” takes place, IN THE MIND.  This word “spirit”, if realized, will make it much easier to understand. This “spirit” is an attitude. We are not to be shaken or troubled IN OUR MIND.  How can we be shaken or troubled?… by word of others.  And just like in the days of Jesus, the same thing is going on today. Back then there use to be folks who would take the letters that were written by the disciples and these folks would change the wording of what the disciples said, to what THEY wanted the words to mean. We see it every day, even now.  

I visited a site that teaches that we are and have always been God. Now, I teach the same thing, with one difference. They teach that we were NOT created, (Gen 1:26)  we have always been God. They teach that the word “created” doesn’t mean “created”.  They teach that it means “becomes”.  Now, I could go along with that teaching IF they did not leave out the WORK THAT GOD DID.  For one thing, GOD WAS NEVER CREATED, He has always been. We did come out from within God, made up of His very substance, and being, BUT without HIM we would not be who and what we are today and have always been.  WE were HIS THOUGHT. WE were WHO and WHAT HE SPOKE INTO BEING.

WE did not just become God. There is a great difference.  But, at this site, I did see some good word. But, the foundation that they are building on takes all the glory away from God and gives it to us. Are we God?  Yes we are, but we are the BODY of God. HE IS THE HEAD that rests on His Body.  Each of us are atoms that make up His Visible BODY.  So, we see our the “word” of this site sets up the thought that we don’t need THAT GOD, because WE ARE GOD.  The “spirit or attitude” that we were not created, or called into being, by God, is the attitude of the son of perdition. The carnal mind. The carnal mind would exalt US to being God, without any help from God.  BE CLEAR ON THIS: we are God; but, just as in the natural, the body has a head that keeps the body functioning, so is it in the spiritual. HE is the HEAD and we are HIS BODY. We are how He is seen in the physical. We are how He experiences things. And if the HEAD is severed from the BODY, the results is death.  The man of sin, the son of perdition is the carnal mind. Do we worship ourselves? NO!!  Just as we give the BRAIN the credit for how the flesh body functions, we must also, always, give the Head of the Body that we are, all the glory!  Yes, we have within us ALL that He is and ALL that He has, but it is because of HIM that it manifests.  Amen!

Let’s continue on, in 2 Thessalonians.  Now, verses 5-9 is actually talking about the carnal mind. This “he” is not a person, it is thoughts. Thoughts that become spoken words and words bring forth manifestation.

VS 10, “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness IN them that perish: because they received not the love of THE TRUTH, that they might be saved…”

Now, this “might be saved” is referring to TOTAL SALVATION… Spirit, soul and body. Remember, this bible is written to CHRISTIANS, so these HAVE already received the first part of salvation, the salvation of the Spirit.  (Actually, the TOTAL salvation has been worked, it’s just that some are not aware of it YET.)

VS 11-12, “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

The delusions that folks believe is ANY WORD THAT IS NOT GOD’S TRUTH. And that BOLDNESS in their BELIEFS is what causes those delusions to cause damnation. Now, folks, this doesn’t mean that all who believe lies are forever damned and in torment. Do you see anywhere where the Word says, there is no hope for those who go on to the grave, and taste death, because of their beliefs?  Teaching and learning goes on for those who taste death. (Rev.10:1-3, Dan 12:5-10) No, He provided FORGIVENESS for ALL. It’s just that death is tasted when it does not have to be.  And we’re not just speaking of tasting death, here, we’re talking about BEING WHO AND WHAT WE REALLY ARE… the manifestation on God on earth, being seen by everyone, through everyone. What a glorious BEING!!

We are talking about BOLDNESS.  Remember when we were told, “if you will be ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you”?  He isn’t ashamed of US, He’s ashamed of the “life” that we think we are living. I believe He is ashamed of the lack of BOLDNESS in what He has taught us. But, that’s just my opinion. And I know that some will say, “That is bringing condemnation on folks”. But, that verse in Rom 8:1 says, “those that are IN Christ, there is no condemnation, but, one who is “living” outside of Christ, is bringing on the consequences of not being in Christ. Condemnation. God isn’t doing anything to them, I’m not doing anything to them, THEIR CARNAL MINDS ARE WHAT’S DOING SOMETHING TO THEM. But, thank our God, there is forgiveness for them. And LEARNING!

Listen folks, we have believed that lie of the serpent mind, from the Garden all the way of the dissension down that we made, to where we are now. We are/have awakened to realize this, and now the serpent is destroyed, and ASCENSION is now being manifested. And for the cause of not receiving the LOVE OF THE TRUTH, we damned ourselves to exist in this hell we partook of. But now, the damnation is over. Now, we WANT the LOVE of Truth. Others will too, in time.  When we receive that LOVE of Truth, we think to ourselves, “oh my, I don’t have to live in this hell, in this damnation that I brought upon myself by not listening to what the Spirit has tried to tell us”. No, we KNOW now, that we have deceived ourselves, by allowing the carnal mind to do the dictating. Hallelujah, things are changed.

I want to look at the meaning of this word “BOLDNESS”. It means:

all outspokeness,

frankness,

bluntness,

assurance,

publicity,

confidence,

to exercise courage*****

to be bold,

be confident and to have confidence.

Now, not only do we have to be OUTSPOKEN in our beliefs, His Truths, we have to be OUTSPOKEN PUBLICLY.  Wasn’t Jesus?  No matter where He was or who was around, from the government on down, He was OUTSPOKEN about what He knew to be truth.

Do we have to have courage to do this? You better believe it!  People are going to say hurtful things, but, the hurt is to the flesh and we have learned that we are no longer a flesh being. We are a SPIRIT BEING, we live in a flesh vehicle, but, that vehicle isn’t the real us, so hurt can’t touch us. ONE TIME – that’s all it takes to know this. ONCE we stand up for what we know, we see ONE THING change in us, and that’s it, NO ONE can take His Truth from us.  Even when we listen to other things that are being taught, He will not allow that Truth of HIS to come out of us. If anything, it makes us more discerning. Yes we will lose friends, brethren, family and the likes, but His Truth is worth the loss of the world. Because we KNOW that when their time comes, they too will see His Truth. It’s a confidence that Father has placed in us.

We don’t beat around the bush, when we are ask, “do you really believe that you are ONE, the SAME THING that God is?”  We VERY FRANKLY say “YES! I not only believe it, I KNOW it”.  We BOLDLY agree with what Father has shown us.

Now, of course, we know that ONLY the Spirit can give revelation to anyone. But, we are to tell; encourage; teach His Truths until a person has learned to lean on the Holy Spirit for ALL TRUTH. I could say something here, but, I don’t think that many are ready for it, so I will not. But, YOU are the Voice of God speaking today. The seeds that you plant WILL bring in a harvest. To some, to be religious, is to be VERY soft spoken and not disagree about anything. But, guess what, HE doesn’t want us to be RELIGIOUS. He wants to be seen through us. That takes BOLDNESS on our part.

In the next part, we’re going to be looking at some things that we HAVE to be BOLD about, if we hope to not see physical death; and for God to be FULLY MANIFESTED, living HIS LIFE through us, His visible BODY.

PART TWO
BOLDNESS

Father has spoken and said that He wants a people with boldness. That same boldness that we had when we first come to know ABOUT Him, only now, boldness from those who KNOW HIM AS HE IS. For until they know Him, they cannot know themselves.

There is a particular boldness that I am talking about. Folks think that we cannot force boldness, but you see there is a boldness that has been in us since before the foundation of the world. It is the same boldness of God. We ARE created in His image. Does God have a boldness? He has a boldness that when He speaks He KNOWS what will appear. I am not talking about boldness to witness to people; or boldness to do things. I’m talking about the boldness that is the reason for our being awakened... the reason that our remembrance is returning to us.

It takes a boldness to know who we are. It takes a boldness to know all that in within us. It takes boldness to know who and what we are. It takes a boldness to live HIS LIFE. It takes boldness to believe His Words. For as a man believeth, so is he.

Gal.2:20, “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me…”

Are we or have we been really bold enough to believe these words?  Think about it for a little while. IF we really believed that it is Christ who lives in us, we need to think about His Life.  Does His Life have sickness? Does His Life see death? Just these two questions gives us an answer, even if we don’t or won’t admit it.  Folks, it takes boldness to change from the carnal way of thinking, to the way the Mind of Christ thinks. It takes a boldness to meditate day and night on what Father’s Truths tells us.   And for those who tells us that we can’t force boldness, then we need to allow them to know that IF we are in the image of our Father, that boldness IS ALREADY IN US WAITING TO BE BROUGHT FORTH.

You see, we can’t pick and choose what we WANT to believe and what we DON’T WANT to believe. Either we believe the WHOLE TRUTH or we believe none of it. You see, Father doesn’t want us to be “half believers”, He wants us to believe the ball of wax.  When we don’t believe, we call Father a liar. We have made God in the image that we want Him to be, instead of us manifesting the REAL God. Some want Him as a Santa Claus: will You give me this, or will You give me that? Please Santa, will You?  Some of us want Him as a healer. Oh please heal me and I’ll live for You the rest of my life.

Well, I have good news, because apparently, we haven’t really heard it before. The good news?  He’s NOT Santa, and He’s NOT a healer.  Surprised?  Well, think about it. He has GIVEN US ALL THAT HE HAS:

Col.2:10-11, “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:  In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ. Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead, And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses…”

Now, when Santa gives you your wishes, he has given them, right?  Well, look at what God has given us!! WE ARE COMPLETE IN HIM!!!  Do you realize what that means?  Have you just sat and meditated on the meaning of this?  We ARE COMPLETE, that means that we are in need of NOTHING, NO THING!!  But, is it believed?  Obviously not! Because we keep saying ” will You… will You… will You?”  What more can He give? When He has given His all, what is left for Him to give?  hmmmmm…  So, Santa, He is not. And we need to realize this and have the boldness to believe it.

As for the healer: doesn’t and hasn’t He told us about this?

1 Peter 2:24, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins SHOULD live unto righteousness: BY WHOSE STRIPES WE WERE HEALED”.

IS 53:5, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we ARE HEALED.”

Let me ask; are we in Christ?  I sure hope that your answer is YES. Then let me ask another question: Is there sickness in Him? hmmmmm…..  You see folks, it’s all in our head, and it’s all lies. IF we believe we are Father’s Christ on earth, which we are, if we are IN CHRIST, then is there really sickness in us?  Is there sin in us? If the answer is yes, then we are calling God a liar, and we’re believing the lie of the carnal mind. That’s what keeps folks sick. IF we are complete in Him, don’t we have the same power that is HIS? And yet, folks go up to every prayer line they can find to ask to be healed.  Sad.  I want to tell you something; YOUR MIND ONLY BELIEVES WHAT YOU ALLOW TO BE PUT IN IT!!

Think about it. While you’re thinking about it, ask yourself if you’re bold enough to believe what He tells us.

Our Pattern, Jesus, did NOT HAVE to die. He chose to. To give us all that we are, the exact thing that He was when He walked this same earth… Father’s Christ!  He KNEW Who He was. Do we?  IF we don’t, nothing can save us from sickness, disease or death, NOTHING.  I believe that the ONLY thing that we are judged for is how we are using the anointing of God. The anointing IS HIS LIFE and we HAVE IT.

Another thing, can we go a week without thinking about what we will need next week?  Some are/have learned to not think about next week at all. Because He is a God of NOW, not the past, not the future, He is NOW. He told us, “take no thought about tomorrow, tomorrow will take care of itself”. Do we worry about money problems? Why should we? Did not He tell us that He cares more for us than the lilies of the field?  Don’t’ we hear folks say, all the time, “oh if only I could quit sinning. I have fought this thing for years and still make sin a part of my daily life, but, I’m trying to die daily”.  Well, worry and unbelief is a way of denying God. Either we are sinners, or we’re not. Either we are in His image or we’re not.  We need to FOCUS on who and what we are instead of focusing on what the carnal mind tells us that we are not.

You know, it truly does become a knowing, when we meditate on HIM and HIS TRUTHS. Experiencing that knowing, is when we stop focusing on anything except who we are. Every time the carnal mind tells us that we are sick, we need to tell it what God says.  You see, we keep separating ourselves from Him, because we do EXACTLY the OPPOSITE of what Jesus did. “He considered it NOT robbery to be equal with God”.  Folks, what are we made out of? GOD!! His VERY substance, so how can it be robbery to think what we truly are?  When you think about it, it’s worse to think that we’re NOT equal to God.

Folks, no matter how many pieces you cut an apple into, each slice is still and apple. It’s the same with God.  He doesn’t change, and neither do we. We are what He is. We came out of Him. We’ve been lied to, by the carnal mind about what we are.

1John 4:15-17, “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.  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.  Hence is our love made perfect, that we may HAVE THE BOLDNESS in the Day of Judgment; BECAUSE AS HE IS [SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD].”

Listen to what this is saying:  IF you believe that Jesus is the Son of God… well we all believe that, right?  Well then GOD LIVES IN US AND WE LIVE IN HIM!!  Did you hear that? That makes us what? ONE WITH HIM!!  IF we love, what’s it tell us? Then we live in God and God lives in us!  That makes us ONE, doesn’t it?  Folks, THIS IS the day of judgment. And remember, JUDGMENT simply means to make right what we’ve had wrong, in our mind. IF we have any hope at all, then we’d BETTER BE BOLD ABOUT WHO WE ARE. We need to stop caring what other folks say about us. Did it stop Jesus, when people called him crazy, or a liar, or a blasphemer?  He cared less. HE KNEW WHO HE WAS!!  He acted it, He confessed it, and He lived it.  And how does that scripture end? “AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD!”  This word “this world” means, “in this present arrangement”.  It doesn’t matter where we are, it doesn’t change WHO we are.

I’ll tell you something. There are times that I feel just like Jesus must have felt, when He walked into the temple and tore it up!!  It may not sound loving, but, I just want to SCREAM, “WAKE UP, YOU DUMMIES!!”  Please don’t get mad at me, but, when we listen to what the carnal mind says, we ARE dummies!! And I don’t want to look or sound religious, I want to SCREAM “WAKE UP TO WHO YOU ARE! THERE’S NOTHING WRONG IN KNOWING WHO YOU ARE, THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG IS NOT KNOWING WHO YOU ARE!!”  It’s because I love you!!  We’ve been religious long enough, and where has it got us?  Headed for a grave, somewhere. I want ALL to LIVE and LIVE THE LIFE OF GOD!!

Folks, this IS NOT doing away with God.  We are ONE WITH HIM. And we need to know it and live it. That’s when all that is not of Him disappears!!  IF we would believe this and Know it, and live it, could there possibly be any sickness or death in us?  NO!!!  We are His VERY REFLECTION!! EXACTLY AS HE IS.  Stop looking at yourself as a human. This body is not us. We ARE SPIRIT BEINGS!! Look at Genesis 1 and 2.  In chapter one, we see God created man in His image. Then in chapter two, it tells us that there was NO MAN TO TILL THE LAND. Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to the man that had been created?  You see, the LAND was material. A SPIRIT doesn’t do the natural. There wasn’t a man to till the land, until Adam was formed!!  We WERE and ARE SPIRIT BEINGS. A Spirit doesn’t get sick. A Spirit doesn’t see death. We shouldn’t see sickness or death or any kind of hardship. The carnal mind has convinced us that this flesh body is US and it’s not. It’s just a vehicle to get around and be seen, that’s all. The real us lives IN the body. Where does the bible tell us that God lives?… in a temple, not made with hands… a vehicle to be seen in this world. Do you know that everytime you look at someone, you are looking at God? Even if they don’t know who they are, you do. And instead of allowing the carnal mind to tell you this person is mean, or stingy, or anything else, YOU tell the carnal mind that you are beholding God.!!  We are ONE, with our God. We cannot be separated and there will come a time when all know this. WOW!! Then will you see a difference in everything.

There is not doubt whatsoever, that when I had that first stroke, and God spoke and said, “NOTHING can touch me”, that, that’s why the stroke did not linger, it was bounced off by the OVERRIDING POWER that lives in this body. No doubt at all.  I was HEARING FATHER, and when you are hearing Him, the carnal mind can’t say a word to you. And that word “OVERRIDING POWER” stays with me constantly. When I first heard Him say it, this is what came to mind:

Eph.1:18-21, “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened: that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of glory OF HIS INHERITANCE IN THE SAINTS. And what is the exceeding greatness OF HIS POWER TO USWARD WHO BELIEVE, according to the working of HIS MIGHTY POWER.”

Did you see where the inheritance that He gave us, is? IN US!!!  BUT, you see what it takes, “to us who BELIEVE”! Now, does it matter what anyone at all thinks? No, it’s what YOU BELIEVE!  Let’s go on, here. We’re talking about that OVERRIDING POWER.

VS 20-22, “Which he wrought in CHRIST (God’s anointed), when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places. FAR ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY, AND POWER AND MIGHT, AND DOMINION, AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED, NOT ONLY IN THIS WORLD, BUT ALSO IN THAT WHICH IS TO COME. AND PUT ALL… ALL… ALL THINGS UNDER HIS FEET, AND GAVE HIM TO BE HEAD OVER ALL… ALL… ALL THINGS UNDER HIS FEET…”

Now, look back at verse 18-21, where is this inheritance?  IN THE SAINTS!!! Now, look at verse 23:

“Which IS HIS BODY, THE FULLNESS OF HIM THAT FILLETH ALL IN ALL.”

IF we are ONE with Him, THE FULLNESS OF HIM IS IN US!!!  Now, listen to this. We are ONE with Him, right? Then, this scripture is speaking of US TOO:

ISA 11:1-3, “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots: And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; and shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after hearing of his ears:  but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.”

This is speaking of us, as well as it spoke of Jesus. We are the same Spirit Being that He is, because we came out from within Him, which means that within us, we HAVE the spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge and the fear of the Lord.  Hallelujah!  The earth that we are smiting is OUR EARTH, His temple not made with hands. How are we smiting our earth?  With the rod of our mouth and with the breath of our lips.  HIS TRUTHS!  And look at how we are doing it: “not after the sight of our eyes, or the hearing of our ears!”  We are taking His Truths, His Words and smiting our earth with them, every time the carnal mind tells us anything that is different from what He tells us that we are!  We are KNOWING WHO WE ARE and by KNOWING WHO WE ARE, ALL sickness and death cannot live in us, because we are ONE with Him, and as He is, so are we in this world!

As this Truth is raised up in us, and our focus is stayed on Him and who we are in Him, we began to EXPERIENCE HIS LIFE.

Folks, I pray that you meditate on this. Allow it to be a part of you. Keep your focus on it. You will see HIM manifest!! This isn’t an overnight happening. But, it is true and the more you meditate on it, the more it becomes such a LIVING way of Life, HIS LIFE.

Be BOLD!!  Throw down all that we’ve been told. Be BOLD in not being ashamed of Who you are. Be BOLD to KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT WHO YOU ARE.  You know, He gave us full salvation. And NOW, He is telling us: “WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION.” (Phil 2:12)

It is in us, we have to work it OUT OF US!!  It matters not what anyone else says, because each person has to work it out for themselves, we can’t work it out for them and they can’t work it out for us.  He tells us to purify ourselves. (1John 3:3). How do we purify ourselves?  By taking the trash that we’ve believed all these years. By NOT believing that we are sinners; and NOT believing that we are mere mortals.  The changing of the mind will change everything, including the body. If we have guilt, we’re saying that God didn’t do what He tells us He did. NOW, ARE WE SONS OF GOD!!  (1John 3:2)  We should be called Sons of God. (1John 3:1) Folks, NOW is the judgment of the world, and NOW is the prince of this world cast out. (John 12;31) The prince of the world is the carnal thoughts. As we purify our mind, all is gone but Father, Who we are ONE WITH.

Be blessed.
