Power of Agreement. From Salvation to Sonship. In Partnership With Heaven. By Reuben Esh

Power of Agreement

In Partnership With Heaven

Matthew 11: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Mat 11:28-30 KJV)

There was a young man who grew up in a poor family and he decided to make God to be a senior partner in His business. After he did that his business exploded. This man’s name is Stanley Tam. He wrote a book about it “God owns my business”. Stanley Tam is onto onto something that church has to get a hold of. We need to form a partnership in Heaven.

We have equal status and equal rights with Jesus to the inheritance. Sonship is the most intimate and costly form of intimacy with God. Difference between Peace keepers and peace makers. Peace keeper will go to great length to keep peace, including compromise. A goal of peace maker is to get others to be at peace with God.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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?

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)

Refiner’s Fire – The Truth will set you Free – 002 from The Refiner’s Fire on Vimeo.

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.

Knowing the Will of God

“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever” (1John 2:17 KJV)

That’s s how to survive in this trying time.

The question is: “What is the Will of God?” If we want to know the will of God, we need to turn to John 7:17: “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself” (John 7:17 KJV)

We need to connect closely to God’s word. It has an amazing effect on other people, when we do what is right and our life is coherent, consistent, has integrity.  There is a purpose behind this.”For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men” (1Peter 2:15 KJV)

Much of opposition to God’s Word comes not from truth or fact, but from ignorance and tradition. It becomes silenced when we do what God says and they see the results.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12 KJV)

He does want us to do His will that others will recognize, that God is at work in me and in others who walk with Jesus. How to do it?

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice… And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Rom 12:1-2 KJV).

People say, “How can you know God’s Will?” Or “maybe it is God’s will for you to be sick”. If you visit somebody in a hospital and they say, “It is God’s will for me to be sick” Then why are you here in the hospital trying to violate God’s will?

Only One Will Win

Many people are finding out, that the god they serve is not alive at all, he is not real. Many people become angered, because the thing they thought real is not real. We serve a living God.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)

Everybody starts to run, but only one will win this race. You are going to win. Anything in your life that is not real will hinder you from winning. Hypocrisy is not going to win, anything that is fictitious, not real. If you try to be happy and have love, and you are not really happy or don’t really love, you won’t win. What love and joy you have, you invest it, and it comes back more.

“But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day” (Matthew 24:20). This is a last day message. Truth will never compromise.

Let Every Man Be Fully Persuaded

Pastor Jake RiehlBeloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. (1 John 4:1-6). Somebody who has great revelations, who has a lot of understanding of the Word could be a problem. I am not saying to be critical. But we need to separate ourselves from the wrong.
