In the order of Melchizedek: Power of Indestructible Life

Kevin CampbellGod says, “I am looking for a group of people who have love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, self-control.”

The law was our school master to bring us to Christ. If the law is not agains you. You are free to be a child of God. And when people see the Father in you, it means you graduated.

Hebrews 7:1-16. What made Jesus in the order of Melchizedek? Verse 16 tell us it is a power of Indestructible Life. We are here for it. It makes you sons, kings and priests. This power of endless life that you know possess though Jesus after the order of Melchizedek. If you don’t have manifestations of love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness in your life, you are carnal, you need saved. The Spirit has power, flesh is a problem. You can please men, but it won’t help you. Can you please God?

If you have this power of Indestructible Life, rivers of water of life will flow out of you, unless something is as a dam.

Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness are weapons of our warfare. If you have it,. You will make it. If you don’t have it, your boat will sink. You’ll be as good as a rock thrown into the ocean. If you do not have a life preserver you are no better than a rock with water before you.

15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless [indestructible] life. (Heb 7:15-16 KJV)

It Is Beginning to Rain

Апостол Рубен Эш. Apostle Reuben Esh

KJV Ezekiel 47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. (Eze 47:1-5 KJV)

Overcoming dry seasons in Christian walk. The river of God is great mighty Holy Spirit of God. As this rever saturates us we produce life and out of our innermost beings shoots life. How much water will it take for you to experience the refreshing? Up to your ankles, up to your knees or more? If you are thirsty, you will find water.

This message has a prophetic implication. God told me that it is beginning to rain right now.

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.

Having Salt in Yourself

Эрик Кэмпбелл“Taste and see that the Lord is good.” If someone is in need, you can be there to show that the true flavor of the Gospel, not just any flavor, but the real stuff. You should be a seasoning, be a preservative. You know why thing is the world deteriorating so rapidly? Because no salt is left on this earth to preserve the souls of men. How do I know that there is no salt on the earth? There is no more tears. Two ways you produce salt in your body – sweat and tears. And the church does not produce it any more. Very rarely you find people why are weeping and morning with tears or to put sweat equity any more.

The only thing that will heal the wound is the truth.

KJV Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

If you feel downtrodded, you’ve lost your salt.

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.

I Shall Be Healed

Heal me, O LORD, and I SHALL BE HEALED; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise” (Jeremiah 17:14).

INTRODUCTION

The Bible tells us that everything should be confirmed by two or three witnesses before it can be established. In this series of lessons, we want to emphasize that we have more than two or three witnesses for our belief in divine healing. “…In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established” (II Corinthians 13:1; see also Matthew 18:16). In this study, we have used more verses than necessary for confirmation.

Daniel Rodes

Ye Shall Know the Truth 

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). 

We need to understand the truth about healing before we can enjoy it’s full benefits. Tradition claims God doesn’t heal today, but the Truth confirms He does. The traditional way replaces miracle healing with doctors; but the Truth declares, “He sent His word and healed them…” (Psalm 107:20). There are people who claim that the Lord wants them to be sick to bring Him glory according to John 9:3. They say the Lord sent them to the hospital to have an operation so they could witness to a doctor or nurse. They argue that God wants them to suffer for His sake, yet at the same time are taking pain medication. They quickly remind us that it is not always God’s will to heal, yet they rush to the doctor or hospital without praying to see if it is God’s will or not. They get very upset when someone comes against their traditional training and manmade beliefs. Even those who believe it is God’s will to heal have fallen into confusion when their “Masters” were hospitalized because of major health problems or they died.

Traditions have a very strong hold on people. So much so that they may even resist the Word of God in favor of their traditional upbringing. Some denominations have bound their people to tradition to the extent that the Word of God is ineffective. Jesus told us in Mark 7:9, “…Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

People who resist the truth often wrest the Scriptures unto their own destruction (II Peter 3:16). God’s Word will never change or submit to anyone’s authority, therefore, in order to deliver people from traditional bondage, we must use the Biblical method to do so. Only those with an honest heart will understand God’s great healing power for today. Jesus spoke of those who accept the truth as having an honest heart. “But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience” (Luke 8:15).

Does God Mean What He Says?

The big question that we have subconsciously entertained is, “Does God mean what He says in the Word?” This question was asked years ago in the Garden of Eden by the devil to disarm the child of God and destroy his faith. If the devil can succeed in making you believe God doesn’t mean what He says, He can remove the Word out of your heart (see Luke 8:12-14) and replace it with the traditions of men. “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (II Corinthians 2:11).

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).

…let God be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).

… thy word is truth” (John 17:17).

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…” (John 16:13).

Sickness Is a Bondage

Since we studied that the knowledge of the truth is capable of making us free, we can be set free from sickness and disease by acknowledging the truth. Notice the expression, “loosed” (set free), in the two following scriptures.

And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God …And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?” (Luke 13:11-13, 16)

And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain” (Mark 7:35).

This study is to help you see yourself healed. Keep your desired miracle before your eyes at all times. “Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes” (I Samuel 12:16). As you study this lesson, keep in mind those with an honest heart receive the Word of Truth in their hearts.

Pray For Yourself

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.

Chosen of God

A Prophetic message

 Daniel D. Rodes

So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen, Matthew 20: 16.

According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, Ephesians 1 :4.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light, 1 Peter 2:9.

GOD’S BOOT CAMP

No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier, 2 Timothy 2:4.

When the U. S. army trains their soldiers, they first send them to “Boot Camp” to rid them of their childish ways and to teach them to become “battle hard” soldiers. According to those who have gone through “Boot Camp,” it is not easy. They have to do things they don’t necessarily enjoy, but this is a part of the training. Readiness for battle can be a matter of life or death, and who would choose to die on the battle field?

I heard a paratrooper say when he was in training, he had to run one mile the first day, two miles the second day, three miles the third day, four miles the fourth day, five miles the fifth day, six miles the sixth day, seven miles the seventh day, eight miles the eighth day, nine miles the ninth day, ten miles the tenth day and ten miles each day after that. Why? The army needed tough men, strong men, able men. God needs “men,” CHOSEN men who are trained in the “Boot Camp” of Heaven. God, help us to be “MEN” I am not talking about males, I’m talking about “MEN,” MEN and woMEN! God needs YOU! You can be CHOSEN!

Paul, in writing to Timothy, said to endure hardness as  a good soldier, 2 Timothy 2:3. The Lord has a “Boot Camp,” so to speak, for all His CHOSEN people. The time of childhood is over for those who have been Christians for years. Whether we desire adulthood or not, it is a necessary part of life. Adulthood is not easy to attain, but will be very rewarding to the CHOSEN of God. We must train our up-coming generation to become hardened soldiers. Well armed with the unchanging, unfailing, Word of God.

YOU CAN BE A CHOSEN SOLDIER

The Lord Jesus made it clear in Matthew 22:14, For many are called, but few are chosen. Why are there so few who can endure the “Boot Camp” of the Lord? Endurance is a choice of commitment. The Lord is looking for committed, strong, stable men and women in this hour to fight the good fight of faith. There is a battle to be fought. There is a world to win to Jesus Christ. God is looking for preachers, teachers, soul winners and warriors. We have had enough weak, fearful, childish leadership. We are under attack. Our homes, children, marriages and churches have been attacked. We don’t need more actors in the pulpit, we need attackers; men who will fight back; CHOSEN men who refuse to let a heathen nation control our homes, schools and classrooms. We no longer cry, “The enemy is coming,” for the enemy is here! God has CHOSEN us to beat him. We are called to overcome him. The heathen had to tell a sleeping prophet, o sleeper? arise, Jonah 1:6. Could it be that a heathen society will have to wake us up? We don’t need intellectuals with their fancy warmed over sermons to get us fired up. We need CHOSEN men of God who have set their hand to the plow and refuse to look back as written in Luke 9:62. We need CHOSEN men of God who will do what Jesus said do, Let the dead bury their dead, Luke 9:60. We need inspired men, empowered men, who will teach their boys to be men. God is looking for CHOSEN men, not frozen men. Frozen corpses can’t carry flaming Swords to drive the enemy back. We need motivators who can place enthusiasm in the pulpit. We have enthusiasm in sports, video games, television shows, and internet. These things can hinder and destroy a nation if not controlled by God-fearing people. Until God-fearing CHOSEN men of God proclaim without fear, a complete and total separation from the world system, we will have wimps instead of CHOSEN men. We need a Moses to get us out of Egypt but we need the Jehovah God to get the Egypt out of us. We need another Jeremiah to weep over “God rejecting” nations.

We need MEN; CHOSEN MEN, able MEN. Men who won’t quit when under pressure. Men whom the Bible says, One man of you shall chase a thousand, Joshua 23:10, and two put ten thousand to flight, Deuteronomy 32:30.

PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE

The following prophetic message was given to me in a hotel in Chicago, IL in September, 1995. The Lord showed me some of the things that will be taking place in the near future. He wants to equip us to come through this time in victory. Before we can have victory and win the battles, we must follow Isaiah 38: 1, Set thine house in order.

BABIES MUST GROW UP TO BE CHOSEN

For years the Church has been a hospital for the wounded, many of whom have remained wounded. She has also served as a nursery for babies who have never grown up. Beyond question, the Lord is concerned about people who are hurting, and He has been loving and caring for the babes in Christ. However, the day has come for the Church to be a “Boot Camp” for those who are to be mature in the things of God. People who are still babies in the Lord after five, ten or twenty years will suddenly be faced with a decision; either grow up, or blow up. People are in trouble who spend day after day, week after week and year after year still nursing their wounds and recalling all t.he evil that has befallen them. Those who have been counseled and prayed for over and over again and keep falling back into the same old “pity me,” “love me,” “help me” condition, will become an easy target for satan to destroy. Christians in this condition weaken churches and kill evangelism. They spend years with tears and fears. They sing of going through the deep, dark valleys of life while they live in strife. They cry on each other’s shoulders. They write and talk about death, pain and suffering. They blame others for their sorrows, grief, failures and sins. They often murmur and complain. This is the very thing that kept God’s people from entering into the land of Canaan.

The Israel of God

Who is Israel?

Ignorance of the Bible is a serious problem today.  Most people do not even take their Bibles to church.  The rest of them seldom diligently study what the Bible teaches so that they can cooperate with God.  In fact, most of them don’t even know the basic facts of the Bible and Christianity.

I have to apologize for my colleagues in ministry because they are simply repeating what they were taught in school without ever checking the facts in the Bible.

 I made the same ignorant errors for years before I began to seriously study the Bible to learn from God what He said and wants us to do.  If we don’t wake up and begin to do diligent study of the Word of God we risk being thrown in the lake of fire at the final judgment. 

February 26, 2011. Topic “The Israel of God”. Who is modern Israel?

Many of us just depend on what our religious leaders say and go on as if we were not responsible to know the Word of God.  Jesus clearly rejected that idea in his Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5 thru 7.

(Mat 7:21-29 KJV)21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:  27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Jesus said it.  So,… Don’t get mad at me for telling you what the Bible says.  Jesus will not ask you what your preacher taught you.  Your actions will be clear enough.  Not even I can blame being lost on someone else misleading me.

 Today I bring you a hard message, but it could be the saving of your soul.

 There is only one God and He is not me. Jesus gave us one key rule for salvation.

(Joh 6:26-29 KJV)26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

What is the evidence of our belief?

We just read in Matthew 7:23 that it is our “works” or behavior.

This is confirmed in James.

(Jam 2:19-20 KJV)19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

I will let you look up on your own the other witnesses to this fact of salvation.

Now to our subject of the message. Exactly who are the “Israel of God”??

by Richard Noel

(Gal 6:16 KJV)16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Accounted Worthy to Escape

Apostle Reuben Esh

Reality check: Lu 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Endtime promise: Ps 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

# 1) Escape from famine and death   

Reality check Lu 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Endtime promise: Ps 33:18 Behold the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

My Sinful Soul

In the religious world it is common to hear someone describe himself as having a “sinful soul”.  As I heard this recently, “I’m just a sinner saved by grace”. If you are a sinner, what were you saved from? I decided to look up the way the Bible uses such expressions.  We will read all of the references to “sinful soul”.  I could find and see what God has to tell us.  I wanted to find out if any such people could look forward to living with God.

Num 32:13-14 KJV 13 And the LORD’S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed. 14 And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers’ stead, an increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel.

KJV  Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

Do you see much hope in there? They are in such condition, that no condition for heaven.

KJV  Amos 9:8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.

Not very bright picture for sinful souls either.

KJV  Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

He is not going to welcome them into heaven.

Luk 5:6-10 KJV And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.  7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

There will be no sinners in heaven. Peter recognizes it. The Lord has done a marvelous thing, and Peter is in fact saying, “I am a sinful man. Don’t get too close to me. I might explode”. When the power of God comes close to sin it burns it up. Why Peter had such respond?

Flesh and Blood: the Problem and the Solution

Flesh and Blood of the Word. From FlickrI have always puzzled over the language used by the Apostle Paul in describing the Christian life. My problem came in reading 1 Corinthians 15:50. The language seems so strange.

NAU 1 Corinthians 15:50: “Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.”

In English a dead person cannot inherit anything.  Actually the dead persons property is inherited by those still alive.  In both Greek (NT) and Hebrew (OT) the word translated “inherit” frequently simply means “possess”.  By understanding the Bible language we can restate the text to “flesh and blood cannot possess the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable possess the imperishable”.

KJV Numbers 13:30 “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.

The idiomatic phrase “flesh and blood” is used to describe living human beings.  Notice how Jesus used this expression in Matthew 16:17.

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” Obviously, God is not “flesh and blood”.

Paul used the expression 4 times including 1 Corinthians 15:50.

Galatians 1:16 , “immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia..” Here Paul is referring to humans in contrast to God.

NAU Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places .”

Clearly this separates supernatural forces from human powers.

KJV Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”

This text tells us that Jesus participated in humanity, i.e . flesh and blood.

Do we have to cease to be human to get into the kingdom?

Using Scripture Correctly

Part 2. What About Jerusalem?

If you were to tour Jerusalem one prominent feature of the tour would be a grand lie.  I want you think about that idea and later I will explain it in detail.

Many people look to Jerusalem as the key to future events. Dispensationalists mostly look to the Jews building a temple on what is called the “temple mount”.  Some even point to the book of Ezekiel for the pattern of that temple.

Just as Dispensationalists look for the temple to be “rebuilt” in Jerusalem.  Many other people look for the Pope somehow to become the great world leader who will force people to receive the “mark of the Beast”.   Others see the “beast” as a computer in Belgium, that will be the way all people will be monitored to enforce a one-world government.

As we seek to understand Scripture we must be careful to read the text for what it is talking about and then let the Scripture explain itself.  Whenever the subject of interpreting Scripture  comes up I hear the words I grew up with. ” precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little”.

I was taught this verse as a principle for interpreting the Bible.  Sadly, it is mistranslated and taken completely out of context.  Both of these errors are so serious Continue reading Using Scripture Correctly

The Truth Will Set You Free

There is a reason why people do not enter the gates of Heaven.

Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?  2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. (Isa 53:1-2 KJV)

When the Truth came people did not recognize Him. When people get acquainted with the truth most of them don’t recognize it. The same way it is today. “He was despised”. Truth is despised and rejected of men.

Many pastors and leaders have ignored through the generations the truth inherent in the Word of God and brought peril and a strange gospel into their churches. Though the Truth is at times hard to swallow, the application of truth to our lives causes us to live in freedom from sin and oppression of the devil.

The Job of the Holy Spirit

Many people consider the work of the Holy Spirit to be an apostolic or New Testament doctrine.  Sadly this overlooks the wealth of material in the Hebrew Bible.A cursory search for the word Spirit in the KJV reveals slightly more usages in the OT than in the NT.

by Richard Noel

KJV  Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Gen 1:2 KJV)

KJV  Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. (Gen 6:3 KJV)

KJV  Genesis 41:38 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? (Gen 41:38 KJV)

KJV  Exodus 28:3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office. (Exo 28:3 KJV)

How To Receive Divine Healing

ReceiveI had been expecting a package to be delivered by UPS and wondered when it would arrive.  I went to the website of UPS.  To my surprise they said the package had been delivered some hours previously.  I went searching and found it on my front porch. I picked up the package and it was what I had ordered.   It was waiting for me to receive it by picking it up from the porch.

We often ask God for special help and blessings and then wonder why they are not present.  The problem is not with God.  It is with us and our ability to receive.  Let’s go to our first text.

by Richard Noel

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,

The text does not say that Jesus made them God’s children.  It says He gave them the right to become

Many people go around saying that God will not accept me.  I have been too evil for Him to accept me. Our consciences have been condemning us so long that we have trouble actually believing this verse.  The Bible does not say as many as God accepted.  This is not God’s choice, it is ours.  It says (speaking of Jesus), that “as many as received Him”.

Don’t feel bad that you may have not noticed this before.  Many religious traditions have taught that we must crawl toward Jesus and if we are good enough He will receive us.  That tradition is not what the  Bible says. Like my package, God’s offer must be received by us for it to become effective.

Even Jesus’ disciples had problems with this process.  Not all of them believed the testimony of Jesus’ resurrection. One even had his own rules for receiving the message.
