Evangelist Eric Campbell

From Barren to Believing Again

We are so busy trying to be right and proving we are right, that we forget what it means to be righteous. There is a difference. Jews were so busy trying to be right, so when the Righteousness came, they missed it. In the midst of it you stop listening to the Holy Spirit and start listening to the voice of men and the voice of your conscience and the voice of the law. If I am not led by the Spirit, by the voice of God, I will not make it.

1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. (Isa 54:1-3 KJV)

When Wasting Time Is the Most Productive Thing You Can Do

The hems of my soggy pants brush my ankles, sending chills up my spine.

Grass confetti sticks like static electricity to my shoes with each step.

I stop and stare at the horizon; my hand covers my squinting eyes, an awning shielding the brightness.

I’ve memorized this moment for eleven months, breathless with the reality. Captivated by simple beauty, I sit down and mentally retrace the familiar lines of the landscape.

Water gently laps on the shoreline, the sun illuminating the lake like a flash mob of photographers.

Children’s voices and the hum of a boat echo from miles across; the blue cloudless sky meets inky indigo water. A bird trills from two houses beyond, breaking my trance, diverting my attention toward the beach strewn with sand toys, water skis, and crumpled beach towels.

I hear myself exhale. And think…

Time is a relentless river. It rages on, a respecter of no one. Shelly Miller shows how to slow the torrent by fully living in the moment. On a walk at dusk she discovers when time slows, God’s voice is clear. Answers for questions about loneliness and belonging come quickly through one simple but curious word: Sabbath. As a pastor’s wife, London expat, and mom of two adult children, she knows what it means to get lost in the current and how wasting time can be a life raft. Today, Shelly guides us in finding our unique rhythms of rest. It’s a grace to welcome Shelly to the farm’s front porch today…

Pastor Petr Dudnik. Slavyansk, Donetsk region, Eastern Ukraine

Sermon “To Set in a Wide Open Space”

What good is in hardships? How to live during hard times and what is reward for humility before God? What war teaches Christians and how in the tight circumstances and distress to discover the width of God’s blessings.

God gives wide open space in distress if you correctly walk through the valley of a shadow of death. If you pass your difficult circumstances with the right heart, God opens incredible sources of blessing. “As they pass through the Baca Valley, he provides a spring for them. The rain even covers it with pools of water. (Psalm 83:6 NET). We saw, how these sources opened up in our lives.

God supernaturally liberated Slavyansk. One group left, another came in and the peace came. They just vanished instantaneously at 6 or 6.30 am. And I am calling the military and I said to them, “Do you know that there are no more armed people left in Slavyansk?” “How come?”, they ask. “They just left.”

I am absolutely sure that by the means of prayers of the saint, when you hold the Word and say, “Lord, everything You said is the truth and it is going to happen even in spite of what your eyes are telling you.” God performed a great miracle. Today people in the city have their own fears. People feel differently. But nobody, no matter what feeling or opinions they have, nobody wants combat operations. Nobody wants bombing, destroyed houses. There is a fear that all that can come back. But we get up and say, “It is not going to happen. Our faith is not in that these are beautiful words, Our faith is in what the Bible says, “Whosoever God set free he will be free indeed.” And they look at us with their eyes wide open. We say, “It is not because someone is strong and someone is weak. Bible says, “Whosoever God set free is free indeed.” If Slavyansk was liberated by the Ukrainian army, then there will be fear. But as it is God liberated Slavyansk. That is why do not be afraid of anything.

We saw that during war time money and knowing powerful people do not matter, nothing like that is of no significance. What matters immensely during war time is if you know Him and if you have with Him such relationships that you are able to hear His voice, and He just shows you what to do, how to do it.

God’s Will, God’s Plan and God’s Purpose

The safest place for us to be is in the will of God. 

1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;
5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
10 And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thess 4:1-18 KJV)

God’s Health Plan

Lorraine Day, MD, was healed from severe, advanced cancer by faith in God and by rebuilding her immune system.
God’s Health Plan has to have characteristics that are available to every generations since creation, it has to be available to every country and all the people on the face of the earth, it has to be available to the rich and the poor, to educated and uneducated, because God loves everyone just the same, it has to be done at home and it cannot harm the body in any way. What plan fulfills all those requirements? Only God’s plan of faith in God, attitude of gratitude and benevolence, natural nutrition, water, exercise, proper rest, etc, which are all free.

Born to Win. By Daniel Rodes

INTRODUCTION

 This book was not written for men only. Although the word men or man is used freely, I am not referring to male, but mankind. It is my goal and prayer to stir up men and women to become all they can be in this life, to set out to get a dream, a vision and not stop until they see the vision fulfilled.

This is not a weird dream or unscriptural vision someone gets or claims to have from the Lord. Such dreams and visions have brought havoc and embarrassment to the Christian faith. The dream or vision I am talking about is when you have a desire to do something. You see yourself accomplishing it. You have a dream to achieve it. You have the mentality of a winner.

Get a vision or dream to become useful to mankind. Get a vision of becoming a winner. You can do it. Others did, so can you.

We desperately need men and women who can bring change to a world that is quickly getting out of control. We need men and women who care enough about other people that they are willing to be the person for the hour and leave a great influence on others.

Many people across the world have a defeated attitude and outlook in life. There is little incentive to get out there and get something done. I hope this book will stir you to the extent that you realize. Are Born To Win! Go for it!

CHAPTER ONE

GETTING STARTED

Anyone Can Be A Winner

Anyone can become a winner in life and be successful: young or old, weak or strong, rich or poor, known or unknown. I am not saying that you will be rich or own houses, lands, factories, and live in luxury. This book is not written to show you how to get rich. It is to show you how to become a winner. You can be a winner without being rich and owning a fortune. In fact, it wasn’t money that motivated most of the champions of the past to become successful. It was a vision.

Getting A Vision-A Dream

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he (Proverbs 29:18).

There are two very important statements in the above verse that you should consider before you can become a winner. The first one is you must have a vision. The second statement is you must operate in that vision God’s way. If you do not have a vision, you cannot expect to become a winner or be successful. Successful men and women have always had a vision of accomplishing something in life. If you intend to accomplish anything in life, you must get a vision. You can do it if you remember you are Born to Win.

Ask The Lord For An Idea

 If you don’t have a dream, ask the Lord to help you get a dream or a vision. Use your mind-think. That is what God gave you a mind for. Great minds conceive great ideas. Start thinking about what you would like to accomplish. Get a vision to not only help yourself, but others as well. If you keep thinking about your dream or vision, sooner or later it will become a part of you. Dream about becoming a success. Plan to become a success. See yourself prosperous. Get enthusiastic. The Lord will help you become a winner if your attitudes are right and you are motivated by the right spirit.

Train Yourself To Think Big

You may have heard people say, “If I could but keep one heart from breaking, I have not lived in vain.” That statement may sound good to the loser, but it is certainly not a goal for a winner. There is certainly more than one person we can help in a lifetime. A winner must train his mind to think big, but stay within the realms of common sense. Too many have failed in their vision because they had zeal without knowledge (Romans 10:2).

Stop thinking about how small you are. Start thinking about how big God is. Train your mind to think big. When we think success, we strive for success. When we think failure, we are apt to fail. We are what we think about. Proverbs 23:7 tells us, as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Get Faith In Your Vision

You must have faith in your vision. No dream or vision is ever manifested unless there is faith behind the vision. Faith not only speaks, it acts. Faith accomplishes something. Faith comes by obeying the Word of God and confessing it with your mouth, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17). Notice the words, “faith cometh.” The more we speak the Word, the more faith comes. Faith in your vision is a must if you plan to see your vision fulfilled. 

Nothing But Your Best

School teachers become a success when they improve their teaching skills. Successful teachers not only teach, but they influence the lives of those around them. They help others in their classroom to develop into quality men and women. If a school teacher is enthusiastic and has a winning attitude, the pupils will learn to do the same.

A prosperous farmer learns to farm. He has a vision and dream of becoming a successful farmer. He studies about the soil, livestock, tractors, and machinery. He cannot be careless about his livestock, but takes good care of them, seven days a week, 365 days a year. He is constantly learning. He learns from other successful farmers. He learns what to do and what not to do. He knows in order for him to be successful, he must sow his seed at the right time. He must harvest his fields when they are ready for harvest. If you want to be a success, you must be as the farmer. Expect a harvest. Prepare for the harvest. Learn how to reap the harvest. A dream without action is of little value. See yourself the best you can be. Expect to do great things. Expect to be a blessing to others.

A successful businessman sees himself as prosperous. He visualizes himself as a very successful person. He discovers ways to better serve his customers. He searches for ways to make his business more successful.

A good evangelist is not good because he has the ability to draw large crowds. What makes an evangelist successful is a vision of winning souls and bringing men and women to the place where they can be successful Christians.

A pastor is not a successful pastor just because he has the call of God on his life. He is a success because he has a vision to be a success. If you are a pastor, go to your church. Walk back and forth across your church building declaring, “Whatsoever I do shall prosper.” Get a vision of Psalms 1:3 working in your life. Whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Get a vision of your people learning to trust God. See them obeying God and becoming men and women whom God can use. Study the Word. Meditate upon the Word. A true pastor doesn’t quit his job when the first church problem arises. He has a heart for the people God has placed under his care and leadership. He gets to the root of the problem. He finds an answer to his problem. Pastors who became very successful leaders did not become successful without a vision, a plan, a purpose, a zeal, and an enthusiasm. 

Be Consumed With Your Vision

 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (Habakkuk 2:2-3).

No one ever becomes a great success until they are consumed with their vision or dream. Be so consumed with your dream and vision that it becomes a part of you day and night. Let nothing stop you. Be bold about your vision. Talk about your vision. Think about your vision. Dream about your vision. Write your vision. Nail it to the walls of your house. Paste it on the dash of your car. Get enthused about it. Get busy. Do something about your vision. Act like a winner. Talk like a winner. Think like a winner. Be positive. Talk positive about your dream. Be consumed with your vision. That is why God told Habakkuk to write the vision and make it plain. God wanted him to have a complete understanding of that vision that would burn in his bones day and night. You must win! You can win! You are Born to Win! 

Be Committed To Your Vision 

You must be committed to everything you do. Many businesses fail because of the lack of commitment. Marriages fail when there is a lack of commitment. Pastors often suffer because the people are not committed to the church. If you are not committed to God and His Word, you will likely not be committed to anything else. If you are not committed to your vision, you will quit under pressure. If you are not committed, you are doomed to fail.

Be committed to your task. Be committed to your job. Refuse to give up. Don’t turn from it to the right hand or to the left until you accomplish your vision or goal. Think commitment. Talk commitment. Dream commitment. Plan commitment. See yourself committed. Leave nothing to chance and good luck. Don’t look for success-work for it. Don’t expect your ship to come in-build one. Stay on the main road of success. Detours cause you to lose your vision. There is a lot of work to do. Let’s do it. You are Born to Win. Win, brother, WIN!

Change Your Ways To Be A Winner

 As you dream, begin to remove things out of your life that could be a hindrance to your vision. Make sure you are not dominated by the flesh. Get yourself lined up with the Word of God. Correct the wrong in your life. Repent and turn from every evil way. Sin will kill your visions and bring your dreams to a sudden stop. Let the Lord help you overcome evil, then get a vision and go for it.

Learn From Your Mistakes

 Laugh at your mistakes and learn from them. Use your failures as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks. If something doesn’t turn out the way you expected it to turn out, recommit yourself. Go at it again. Plan to win. Plan to succeed. Be determined. Say, “I must succeed. I shall succeed. I’ve got to win.” You can do it. God will help you do it. Angels will help you do it and, under most circumstances, someone else will help you to attain that goal.

CHAPTER TWO

FACING OPPOSITION

Winners Will Face Opposition

 Sometime in life, you will face opposition if you set out to become a winner, a success, a dreamer. Opposition may come from your pastor, your school teacher, your employer, your best friend, or even a family member. They will try to stop you. They will be quick to tell you it can’t be done. They even go on and tell you about a hundred others who tried something like you are about to try and failed. They will accuse you of being proud. Others may try to make you feel like you’re going crazy. Although they may accuse you of everything in the “book,” a winner can’t be stopped.

You may ask, “You mean Christians will try to stop a Christian who is set out to do something for the Lord?” They sure will. Weak, sickly, down-trodden church people don’t want a winner around. They become jealous and are quick to let you know what they think of your enthusiasm. They feel it is their god-given duty to hinder the work of the winner. Few people can win, and they wonder what makes you think you can do it. Losers nearly always try to handcuff the winner, but WINNERS WON’T STOP!

Apostle Paul Faced Severe Opposition

 Paul faced a lot of opposition in his ministry, but he had a vision to get the gospel into all the world. People tried to stop him. Devils tried to stop him. Storms tried to stop him. He was misunderstood, lied about, rejected, and accused. Everywhere he went, he was faced with someone or something that tried to stop him. He was stoned. He was beaten. He was shipwrecked. He was thrown in jail, but he had a vision that he refused to lose. When he was in stocks and in prison, he began to sing. The prison began to shake and there was a great revival there. He was determined to be a winner in spite of backsets and opposition.

Paul exposed his determination to win when he declared, I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air (I Corinthians 9:26). He wasn’t running a race to lose. He wasn’t uncertain as to how his life would turn out. He knew life was a fight. As he came to the end of his life, he gave one of the greatest testimonies written by man. For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing (2 Timothy 4:6-8). He made it. He was Born to Win.

Failures Don’t Stop Winners

Many famous and successful men and women have failed time and again, but they refused to quit. Proverbs 24:16 says, For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again. Everyone faces times in life when they are tempted to quit. Just because a person fails does not make him or her a failure. No one is a failure unless they quit. It is those who keep their eye on their goal, their vision, and their dream who become a success. Remember the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”

So many never have anything to give them courage. All they know is they have failed and failed and failed. They are discouraged and are sure they are born losers. If you have been a failure, get up and start out again. Let me say again; you are not a failure unless you quit.

Some fathers, mothers, and church leaders have taught their people and children to be good losers and to rejoice even if they do lose. No wonder we have so many losers. I am not saying a winner will never lose. Of course, in games, someone will lose, but what should our attitude be? “I may have lost this time, but I will try harder the next time.”

I Will Win

 You tried and tried and tried and failed

 And yet you wouldn’t quit.

You may have thought a dozen times,

 “I’m quitting, this is it.”

But then you heard that little voice

 Deep down within you say;

“I may have failed a thousand times,

But I will win today!”

CHAPTER THREE

 GETTING A WINNING ATTITUDE

 It Takes Hard Work 

How did others become successful and remarkable winners? Many of them got an idea and worked hard to become a success. Mr. Thomas A. Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.” That statement is well worth remembering. Successful people agree that to be a success is hard work. It takes sweat and tears. God said, In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return (Genesis 3:19). It takes a diligent, strong, and zealous person to succeed to the fullest extent.

Building Walls: Wall of Grace

Pastor Kevin Campbell’s familyBelievers need to build walls for the future. As attacks of the enemy comes against God’s people, it is one thing when evil comes, another things when it hits them or not. If it does not hit the walls, it will hit you. The Lord was showing me pour people need to build some walls.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Grace always follow mercy.

4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

 10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: (1Pe 1:3-10 KJV)

You will be what you ought to be because of grace. Grace is a spirit, not a definition. We need grace every single day of our lives. without grace we lose the power to perform God-like characteristics, we will become critical.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2Ti 1:7 KJV).

Love requires a spirit to perform it and brings it to life. Sound mind comes from a spirit.

Understanding and Conquering Fear

Reuben Esh with his wife MarilynIn the lake of fire there are fearful (Revelation 21:8).  Fear robs you from your faith. Fear has to be channelled in the right direction.

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. (Isa 35:4 KJV)

We overcome fear with peace of God.

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. (2Thess 3:16 KJV)

25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. (Pro 3:25-26 KJV)

His bride has made herself ready

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” (NAS Revelation 19:7)

Eric Campbell, evangelist

If you are offended, you are already wrong. If you are mad, you are wrong. If you are right, you don’t have to defend yourself.
I looked up the facts in the Scriptures on how marriages were done in the Bible. Biblical marriage is not based on love, but on the covenant first. Bride was chosen by a Father , Mother or a good friend. You are a Bride of Christ. I did not choose Him, He chose you first.

“We love him, because he first loved us.” (1Jo 4:19 KJV)
I love Him, because He first loved me. God chose you first.

KJV John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:

Here is your first love: He loved you first.

There is Power in Speaking the Blood

The Old Testament Passover

The night the children of Israel left Egypt out of the land of bondage and slavery, God gave them some specific directions to follow. They were to kill a lamb, apply the blood to the doors, roast its flesh, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. God told them how, when, and where to apply the blood of the sacrificial lamb. God’s instructions were, “And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat itAnd they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it”(Exodus 12:7-8).

They were also informed, “…none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning” (Exodus 12:22). If they had gone out of the house when the destroyer came through, they would not have been protected by the blood. They knew the life of a family member was in danger if they didn’t do according to ALL the Lord commanded. The blood was their protection from the destroyer that was to pass through that night and destroy the firstborn. In verse 13, the Lord said, “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.” Notice, when the blood was applied correctly, the people were safe from the destroyer.

The Lord called this night, “the LORD’S Passover” (Exodus 12:11), when they were to come out of the land of Egypt and from the house of bondage.

by Daniel Rodes 

Christ Our Passover

The Old Testament saints had a tangible lamb and blood. God has given us the bread and wine as a symbol of the broken body and shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ when we partake of communion. In the New Testament, the Lord refers to the commemoration of communion as “Christ our Passover” (I Corinthians 5:7). As the children of Israel were given instructions concerning how to prepare the Passover, God has also given us some specific instructions to examine ourselves in preparation for this very important Passover ordinance. We are to make certain our lives are in agreement with God’s Word and that we have peace with God and man before partaking of communion (Passover): “…let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup” (I Corinthians 11:28). The Bible plainly tells us that it is not our responsibility to judge our fellowmen, but to judge ourselves: “For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged” (I Corinthians 11:31).

Preparing for the Passover

Now let’s look at I Corinthians 11:27: “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.” This word “unworthily” means “to be irreverent” or “not worthy” to take communion under the present conditions. We may ask the question, “What makes us unworthy?” In the earlier part of I Corinthians 11, Paul informed the people that there were divisions, heresies, and, in some cases, drunkenness among them which had brought them to a dangerous position. Some sins may seem small, but they could disqualify us to take communion. Habitual strife, envy, contention, slander, talebearing, lying, division, unforgiveness, disobedience or hypocrisy could cause us to be unworthy. It is important that we judge ourselves honestly and repent of any sin and renounce it. Just to say “I was wrong” or “I’m sorry” is like trying to wash a dirt floor with a wet mop. We must renounce and forsake sin.

The Consequences of Taking Communion Unworthily

As the Israelites were aware that they were not safe from the destroyer if they disobeyed God’s instructions, it is just as important for us to partake of the communion service reverently and in godly fear, or we will not be protected from the destroyer. Perhaps many Christians do not realize what could happen to them if they take communion in a state of unworthiness. The last part of I Corinthians 11:27 says, …[he] shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.” Then verses 29 and 30 read, “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.” Let’s analyze the words “damnation,” “weak,” “sickly,” and “sleep.” The word “damnation” means “being sentenced, judged, or damned.” “Weak” means “to be impotent, feeble, or weak.” “Sickly” means “to be infirmed or sick.” And the word “sleep” means “to be dead or deceased.”

Taking communion unworthily could cause a person to experience one or more of the following:

1. They will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

2. They will be condemned.

3. They may become weak.

4. They may become sickly.

5. They could die prematurely.

It is doubtful if the Corinthians who were sick, weak or dying were aware that their problem could be traced back to the communion table. Maybe they didn’t know why so many of them were sick or dying.

Chastisement

In my travels across nations of the world over the years preaching the Gospel, training church leaders, speaking in conferences and conventions and holding healing crusades, I often pray for people who have been suffering guilt and condemnation in their lives for no apparent reason. Some of these people are suffering guilt and condemnation because they have taken communion unworthily. They may not even be aware that they have done this. Someone asked me, “If you took communion ignorantly and were not aware of the danger involved, wouldn’t God overlook that?” The answer to that question is found in Acts 17:30: “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.” The word “winked” in this verse means “to overlook” or “not punish,” but the Lord said clearly that He commands all men in the New Testament dispensation to repent of any wrongdoing or to suffer chastisement (disciplinary correction) from His hand. “But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world” (I Corinthians 11:32). Why would God be so harsh with people who partake of His communion service unworthily? I believe the answer is found in the fact that the body and blood of Christ are spiritual, sacred and precious. Because of this, we must partake of His body and blood reverently and in godly fear. The Lord brings chastisement upon us by means of correction that we should not be condemned with the world.

To eat unleavened bread and to drink grape juice is not dangerous in itself, when taken in the natural. Communion is not a natural ordinance, but a spiritual ordinance. When we take communion, we are commemorating the broken body and the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ who is our Passover. There is great power in the body and blood of Jesus, and I believe that we have yet to learn the true value of them.

Restoration

I believe there is deliverance and pardon for those who may have taken communion in a state of unworthiness. I’m not suggesting that everyone has taken communion with the wrong motive or with sin in their life, nor am I suggesting that you, the reader, take a guilt trip if you may have taken communion unworthily. Certainly not all weakness, sickness or death comes because of misuse of communion or because of sin. If there is a question, however, I believe it would be wise to examine ourselves to see if somewhere along the way we may have taken communion unworthily. If so, thank God, there is a way to be restored.

Eternal Redemption. Daniel Rodes

Many people are sin conscious, because they do not know what the blood of Jesus does. It takes faith to believe that the blood cleanses you from all sin.

11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (Heb 9:11-12 KJV)

1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. (Heb 10:1-2 KJV)

If God said He gave you eternal redemption, you have to believe it. “But I don’t feel like that!” It has nothing to do with reality. You need to get rid of the conscientiousness of sin (I’m just a sinner saved by grace) and start seeing yourself in victory.

16 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; (Heb 10:16 KJV)

I want you to notice: the law is in your heart and in your mind.

19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, (Heb 10:19 KJV)

You are no longer hoping you prayers will be heard,  but you have relationships with the Lord and have direct understanding. Men have tendency to go by feelings. But you are saved by His blood, not if you feel it or not. We need to walk by faith in the blood.

Today we will talk about understanding the communion service. What do we have communion for? What are we expecting to accomplish? We will never understand communion until we understand why Jesus wants us to eat Hid flesh and drink His blood.

We were born with sinful nature.  There is no one righteous. It took something to get us broke loose from sin. I need to appeal my case before God. We are reconciled to God through the atonement.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (Rom 5:10-11 KJV)

15. November 12, 2011. “Who owns you?

I was listening to an interview with a prominent person recently. The interviewer asked a very valuable question. The even more valuable answer was a statement about the current thinking in America.

The answer was that our income tax is based on the idea that we are owned by our government. Therefore, the government has the right to tell us how much of the money we earn we are allowed to keep.

I will now take you back to the time of the American Civil War. European bankers offered to loan money to the USA to fight the war. President Lincoln wisely refused their offer. The Bankers circulated among themselves what is know as the “hazard letter”. That letter asserted that the American system must not be allowed to stand. In slavery the owner is responsible to house, clothe and feed his slaves. They asserted that their system (economic slavery) was better because it required the slave to provide for himself.

The answer pointed out a very vital Bible Principle.

KJV 1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not … ye are not your own?

If I am not my own, then who owns me? If you don’t know about yourself, then this is your opportunity to find out just who owns you?

The idea of ownership applies to: 1) husbands and wives, 2) parents and children as well as 3) slaves and slave owners. These comparisons are used frequently in the Bible to describe the relations between; 1) unbelievers and Satan, and 2) believers and God.

God tells us to be sure who owns us.

NET 2 Corinthians 13:5 Put yourselves to the test to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize regarding yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you– unless, indeed, you fail the test!

How do you know whether or not Jesus Christ is in you?

1) Did you receive Him as your Savior?

NAS John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

2) Is He still living in you? Are you exercising the right?

KJV Luke 11:13 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?

3) What evidence is there that He is living in you?

(Mar 16:17-18 KJV)17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 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.

(Joh 15:4-11 KJV)4 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.
5 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.
6 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.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

KJV John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

(Rom 6:12-14 KJV)
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

(Rom 6:16 KJV)16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

KJV Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Некоторые думают, что всё дело в том, чтоб мы были благословенными. Нет, всё дело в том, чтобы мы были преображены. Если вы будете стремиться только к благословениям, и не будете видеть их, то тогда у Вас будет куча вопросов, и вы разочаруетесь. И вы будете использовать свою веру на то, тобы добиться прорыва и благословений, о которых думаете, что в них всё. Нет! Всё дело в том, чтобы вам иметь мир с Богом, сиять ярким светом, ходить в любви и милосердии, творить мир посреди бед и огненных испытаний.

От одного человека жена ушла к другому. Он 5 дней кричал в своей комнате: “Боже, почему Ты это допустил? Верни мою жену!” Через 5 дней ощутимое присутствие Божие появилось в его комнате. Он утихомирился. Бог ответил ему: “Почему ты молишься так 5 дней? У тебя нет проблемы”. Для большинства пасторов сказанное Богом непонятно. Этот человек закричал на Бога:”Что Ты имеешь в виду, что у меня нет проблемы? Это что – шутка? Мои  дети остались без матери! Моя жена подала на развод! Она в  объятиях другого мужчины!” Бог поворил: “Я тебе сказал точно. У тебя нет проблемы. Твоя жена в беде. А все 5 дней ты только то и делал, что плакал и молился за себя. А Я-то думал, что ты умер для себя. Ты не подумал о ней. Она погибла! А у тебя все хорошо. Я с тобой”.

What Faith and Law Can and Cannot Do For You

Pastor Kevin Campbell’s familyTurn to Faith Avenue and it will take you to Victory Lane.

What the law cannot do, faith can. The law cannot make you holy. The law does not require substance, faith does. Jesus is the evidence you need against the evidence that is against you. Jesus in His hand has the receipt that you have been bought.

Faith is the portal (gateway) to immortal things. By the power of the Holy Spirit the Lord made you worthy.

If you are not abiding in the Word, you will feel condemnation.

KJV  Acts 13:39:  “And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.”

Fine line is between operating in the flesh and in the Spirit.

To Know God and to Know About God

Leonidas Pushkovas, Lithuania

 “…whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace

(Gal 5:4 KJV).

In this teaching we will consider the danger that traps born again Christians when they lose their first love to the Lord and start serving Him, but do it without Him. This thing happened with the entire Galatian church. Instead of walking with the Lord, they moved away to fulfilling of the law. Thus they were left without Christ, have fallen away from grace. We see this same thing in the church of Ephesus, and the Apostle John recorded the Lord’s warning:

1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” (Rev 2:1-5 KJV).

The church of Ephesus worked for the Lord very diligently, to the point of exhaustion, but the Lord declared a strict warning. If she does not recall where she has fallen from to lose her first love, and will not repent, her candlestick will be removed.

After accepting the power to become the child of the Lord, I joined a Baptist church and with pleasure started serving my Lord and King Jesus Christ. From wonderful personal communion with the Lord came true pleasure. Here is a small testimony.

I caught a cold and laid at home in the dark in my bed. However, in my heart I felt joy. I heard in my heart a hymn to the glory of the Lord. At first I thought that I am myself was singing in my mind. But something was not so: I heard a choir. This hymn was familiar to me, and I joined this choir. A real choir was singing, I was convinced of it; I could participate or not participate in the singing. I tried it for several times and noticed that when I did not sing, the choir continued singing praises to the Lord anyway. Then I noticed one more detail: I could lead this choir. When I sang slowly, the choir sang with me also slowly. When I sang faster, the choir obediently followed me. I was glad and thanked the Lord for this wonderful and magnificent phenomenon in my life.

What happened afterwards was even more interesting. I was not sleeping, just lying in bed in the dark. Suddenly in a vision I saw as if the door to other room was opened a little and through the crack of the opened door a bright light shined. From the light a chain of shining balls were rolling. In perplexity I thought: perhaps, they are angels? But why are they so small? I wanted to find it out and asked the Lord to give me a sign: if they are angels let them heal me from the congestion I felt in my chest. In a moment the congestion of cold disappeared, and I was healed instantly.

The next day I was able tell to my brothers in Christ about my wonderful personal communion with the Lord and how I had been cured from cold in a flash. This testimony remains in my memory as one most tender and precious. In my life there have been many similar cases of wonderful communication with the Lord.

These wonderful experiences continued for three more years. However, I started noticing that the love and joy from the wonderful presence of the Lord started gradually evaporating from my life. Frequent irritations returned, delightful infillings of the Holy Spirit stopped along with the miracles from the presence of the Lord. Something was wrong with my salvation. I began watching older brothers and observed that they were in the same position because they loved those who loved them, but could not love their opponents. In conflict situations brothers quarreled and could not quickly forgive their offenders. It was the same as with people in the world who are not born again.

Once we provided a temporary residence in our family for two missionaries from America, a married couple. They were in the Lord for 30 years, according to their own testimony. For us, newborn babies, they were as angels of God. Both of them knew the Bible very well, they were respectful and polite. The wife perfectly played piano, and in both sonorous and pleasant voice eulogized the Lord by singing psalms. It seemed to us that they has reached perfection in the knowledge of love to God and to people. But it turned out that the achievement of love is demonstrated not in a quiet setting but in a conflict. We were witnesses of a fight between the spouses in which they behaved no better than enraged women at a market place. It was the first time in my life when I started pondering about our correctness in the way of salvation because the Holy Scripture says, without love to the Lord we are not needed in eternity (1 Cor 13,1-3). I remember that at those moments I thought to myself: “If I also will be the same in a conflict situation after thirty years of serving the Lord, then everything these teachers taught me, is a lie and hypocrisy.” Later these assumptions proved to be true, when the Lord gave back to us our lost love and taught us to distinguish the curse of the law from the Lord’s grace. We will talk about it in the following short testimony.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CURSE OF THE LAW AND GOD’S GRACE

 “…whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace” (Gal 5:4 KJV).

A brother in Christ came to me and started being indignant about his wife not submitting to him, as to the Lord1. She grumbles and opposes him all the time. It is a so-called “curse of the law” – to demand submission to the law from another person. Continue reading To Know God and to Know About God
