Clothed With Humility

We have two options: we humble ourselves, or He humbles us.

If we do not cast our cares upon the Lord, is it pride.

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)

The Serpent, the Woman and the Flood

 New – Video of the presentation added

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:15-17)

Who is that woman? What is the flood? In the book of Revelation a lot applies to our generation. When a person reads it and gets confused…Confusion comes when someone was rooted in traditions of men and then he come across the verses that contradict their traditions. Confusion also comes when there is a lack of integrity, which leads to lack of the Lord be able to reveal His Word to you. Revelation from the truth of God’s Word begins with an honest heart. If we lack honesty God will actually withhold the truth from us, He will even send a strong delusion, as in Thessalonians, that you might believe a lie.

Men can deceive you, but it is another thing when God deceives you. Those who do not have desire for truth will be swept away with this strong delusion.

How do we discover the truth? Suppose we say, “Brother Rodes has all the answers, ask him.” This is not the way it works.

Overcoming Oppression

Reuben Esh preaches

Apostle Reuben Esh

The Lords wants victory for you. We suppose to overcome the world, the flesh, the devil, temptations, tests and oppression. Either we will overcome these things, or they will overcome us.

The Kingdom Of Heaven is at Hand

The Kingdom of Heaven is at HandI want you to be prepared to turn to a whole bunch of scripture. I’ve been looking at this subject of the kingdom of heaven. I want to look at a whole bunch of verses that have to do with the kingdom of heaven. The title of my message this morning is “the kingdom of heaven is at hand”.

In Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

This is a very interesting verse to me because it really it is the beginning of the New Testament. And many of you know that the OT the last prophet was the prophet Malachi. He brought a message to the backslidden nation of Israel. He was calling for repentance for things that were creeping into the nation of Israel. After the Prophet Malachi spoke the windows of heaven were shut. The prophetic voice of God was silenced for a period of 400 years.

For you that don’t understand how long 400 years is, it is longer than America has been a nation. That’s how long God didn’t speak through the prophetic voice to the nation of Israel.

you get to the book of Matthew and all of a sudden a prophet rises up by the name of John the Baptist. The anointing of a prophet was upon him. The first words he had to say to the nation of Israel in verse 2:

KJV Matthew 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

What did John the Baptist mean by this? What did he mean by “the kingdom of heaven is at hand”? And, what does repentance have to do with the Kingdom of Heaven?

Well, if you have your Bibles, go with me over to chapter 4. In this chapter Jesus is led into the wilderness to be tempted of the Devil. As He comes out of that temptation victorious the Bible tells us that the power of the Spirit was upon Him (in Luke) and this was the official start of Jesus’ ministry.

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

What does it mean by this statement that the kingdom of heaven is at hand?

Why do we have to repent? What’s that have to do with it? Where is this kingdom of heaven?

There are also references to the kingdom of God.

KJV Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

What is He teaching? Preaching the gospel of the kingdom. What are the results of the gospel of the kingdom?

Healing of the sick, all manners of diseases being healed. They are bringing sick people to him in verse 24 that were taken with diverse diseases, that were tormented, possessed of the devil. Those who were lunatics and those that palsy and those that needed healing. And He healed them. Brothers and sisters, you need to know something this morning. Healing is a part of the New Covenant message. It’s a part of the gospel of the kingdom. If you’ve got churches claiming to proclaim the Gospel and healing is not manifesting itself there, they are preaching another gospel. It’s that simple. Part of the Gospel of the Kingdom is the healing power of God. If that’s not in your gospel, you don’t have the Gospel of the Kingdom. It’s that serious.

Now Brothers and sisters the only way into this kingdom is the way John the Baptist spoke about, the way of repentance. The only way into this Kingdom is the way Jesus spoke about. It’s the way of repentance.

Now, this kingdom of heaven manifesting itself in Jesus life is this way. Let’s see what He says about it in the next chapter. Matthew 5:3. He began to talk about the qualifications of the Kingdom and he said:

Pray For Yourself

Reuben Esh

Апостол Рубен Эш. Apostle Reuben Esh

I came back from a couple of trips overseas just recently as most of you have heard.  I just came back from India.  We just had a wonderful time over there.  I took a team over there from the States.  There has been a number of people who said, I just want to go with you overseas.  I wasn’t sure how that would work out because when I go it’s usually not to do work, its usually to preach the Gospel.  Usually we don’t need more than one or two preachers, so I never saw a good opportunity for that until this trip to India.  So, I said, we’ll take a few of these people who’ve been asking me to go along.  And, this ministry that I work with over there, formed some evangelistic teams that would go out into the villages, while I was holding a pastor’s conference.  We really had a good time.  India is so unusual, so unlike any other place on the face of the earth.  You have to be there to grasp how odd, how weird and how different this place really is.  It is so different from American culture, it is hard to fathom.

7 Ps of a Peaceable Habitation

Apostle Reuben Esh

Апостол Рубен Эш. Apostle Reuben EshIt’s going to be a lot of chaos, especially for those who live in the natural. The opposite of that and the plan of God for our life is to experience peace wherever we are at.

Isaiah 32: 15-20   15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.  16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.  17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.  18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;  19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.  20 Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.

The manifestation of God’s promises is not so much in an appointed time in history as much as it is for the righteous of God to understand that these things belong to them, they are a part of the inheritance and the violent is going to take it by force.

The promises of God today are “yes” and “amen”. They are for us to get a hold of.

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

It is part of our inheritance and the violent take them by force.  The people who do not really want it will not get it.

What Will Make the Remnant Prevail

Apostle Reuben Esh

Revelation 12:1 – 13: And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Neither Give Place To the Devil

Apostle Reuben Esh

Ephesians 4:27: Neither give place to the devil.

The issue at hand here is the casting out devils. It is very important for you to understand this. Jesus was wrongly accused about casting our devils by the power of the devil. It response He say, “the house devided cannot stand”, i.e. it is not possible.

The wrong interpretation of Matthew 12:29 “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house” has led to charismatics tradition and rendered this portion of the Scripture of none affect in people’s life. It has to do with binding devils. It also introduced spiritual warfare mindset, which really may cause some problems. I believe in rebuking and casting out devils. But I do not believe that binding the devil is scriptural.

The reason people bind the devil because they think that “strong man” in verse 29 is the devil. The interesting thing you never see Jesus binding the devil. You never see the early church binding the devil. They always loose the power of the devil.

You never see the devil bound until Revelation. I’ll prove to you that the strong man is not the devil.

How To Get Into Your Calling

For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen (Matthew 20: 1, 14-16:)
