“So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
“[Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”
Brothers and Sisters we have been Created In God The Fathers Image and For His Glory. We need to understand that this has not changed nor will it. All Things from the beginning have been Created For The Fathers Glory, not Jesus and not The Holy Spirit. We need to understand that God, that is, The Father, is a Jealous God. He Wants, Needs and Deserves All Of The Glory through our Lives. This is the Foundation that All Things are built upon and that foundation is Unmovable!
This message will go in a circle; Faith, Honor and Glory. As I have taught many, everything comes from God and in return our Praise, Worship and Honor go back to Him, it is the U-Turn affect. Now with that being said, not everything in this World is of God, nor does everything belong to Him now. Since the Fall of Adam, the World we and is divided into Two Kingdoms, God’s and Satan’s and the Free Will Factor, that is, Freedom Of Choice, we, as Mankind, Choose The Kingdom We Walk In. So, in Fact, there are Three Powers and Two Kingdoms. There is God’s Power, there is Satan’s Power and there is Mans Power. For us, our Power is in the Freedom Of Choice of How We Are To Live, for God, or for Satan, and that will deem The Choice of What Kingdom You Belong To, this is Where Faith Walks!
“15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
“9 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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Our First Action in Faith In God is to Believe that Jesus is The Son of God The Father. The Second Action in Faith In God is to Believe that Jesus came to Save Us From Sin…to The Fathers Glory! We Must Understand that Belief is an Action Item, it cannot set idol, Action Follows There After. In our Belief, that is, Our Free Will, we Must Confess that Jesus is The Son of The Father and that He Came to Save Us from Sin, but that is the Beginning Only… Once we do that then Kingdom Choices Arise.
If we are to Have Faith in Jesus, then we Must Walk In That Belief or else Our Belief becomes a Lie, so this is where Honor Must Be Actions By Faith.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Our Walk Must Be In Faith In Jesus that we will go to Heaven. Our Walk must also be that All Of Our Needs, NOT GREEDS, will be taken care of, WHILE WE WALK IN JESUS! What does this mean? It means that All that I Say, All that I Do MUST REFLECT MY FAITH IN JESUS and as I do so, Jesus will take care of me to His Glory…to The Fathers Glory.
“1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”
We, my Brothers and Sisters, need to Examine Our Walk in that we are The Image Of Who Jesus is In Us, that we are The True Image Of The Father in this World. This means that if I am Walking as The Father wants me to, then He will take care of All of my Needs According To His Glory.
“21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness! 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.”
God The Father Created Us knowing what we have Need Of these things before we even ask. When we Ask for these things we must Ask Believing that God Will take care of us, we Must Ask in Faith, that is, we Must Walk Knowing that He Will Take Care of us to His Glory! Now with that being said, there are times that it seems that God has forgotten us or abandoned us, we need to Understand that Jesus will not Forsake us, in our Trials, in our Temptations He is there and through those things will Bring Glory To Himself and The Father. That also means that in our sufferings Jesus is there, but through our suffering will bring Glory To The Father IF YOU ALLOW Him to do so.
One of the things that Mankind cannot seem to Understand is that All Of Us will die, but WHERE we spend Eternity depends on Our Choices. When we, The Blood Bought, die there should be Rejoicing because we are going Home to be with Him Who Saved us from our Sins! Death is just a Transition from one place to another, if We are Walking according to God’s Holy Word then Rejoicing in Heaven there will be. Our Assurances is In Jesus!!!
The other thing that we need to Understand is that some things that happen are not about you, but about someone else. God Loves us so much that He will do anything to bring us to Salvation, to bring us to Maturity In Him. If Jesus so chooses to allow me to suffer, to allow someone else to come to Him, then Praise Jesus He Found me Worthy to do so! Is it fun…NO!!! But our Understanding needs to be that We Are To Glorify Jesus, whom Glorifies The Father Through Us. Our Love for God has NO BOUNDS or I should say, it should not.
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, [here] I [am]. 2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only [son] Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. 3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. 4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. 5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. 6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid [it] upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. 7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here [am] I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where [is] the lamb for a burnt offering? 8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. 9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. 11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here [am] I. 12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son] from me. 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen. 15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son]: 17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”
What we Seem to Give up, or what we Go Through is to God’s Glory as well as to Our Benefit. We must learn to Look through the Understanding of Jesus and not that of our own. We have been given the Opportunity to Glorify Jesus Freely, Walking In Obedience. When we do not Walk In Obedience, then there is No Glory To Jesus or The Father, but it is counted as Sin. If we are Faithful to Confess our Sins, then Jesus is Faithful in Forgiving us of Our Sins.
“8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
1 John 1:8-10
Brothers and Sisters what does it matter how we Walk? It matters in Representation. Jesus will Give us to The Father In Glorification! We are The Bride of Jesus whom The Father will Accept because of Jesus Blood, Jesus Love For The Father and Us.
“1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. … 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
John 17:1-5, 10
“14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present [us] with you. 15 For all things [are] for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:14-15
All Things Return To The Glory Of The Father!!! Jesus came to Honor The Father and to Glorify The Father. We, how accept Jesus are to Glorify Him in Obedience that in return Will Glorify The Father. Our Walk is and should be By Faith Honoring Jesus in All that we Do and Say bring Glorification to Him in Glorifying The Father. Examine your Life, your Walk, does it Scream that you are Blood Bought or does it still represent Satan?
Jesus will not force you to Walk In Obedience
it is Your Free Will Choice of
Who’s Kingdom you Belong To!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
