Don’t Compete, Monopolize!

Isaiah 40:5  And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

The church of Jesus Christ is GOD’S ONLY HUMAN INSTRUMENT, which can make Him visible.

Glory is defined as making the invisible God, visible.

The purpose of God’s glory is to usher people into eternal salvation.

Through this glory physical healings occur, people are set free from demonic oppression, and revival of cities and nations that ultimately change civilization are carried out.

Civilization’s most vital requirement, and  most desperate need, is to be capable of beholding the invisible God, who desires to make Himself plainly evident, through Jesus Christ, by His glory.

Aside from His glory as seen in creation, God has made for Himself no other avenue that will allow Him to become visible in a real and personal way to people, than through the church.

She has the monopoly on God’s glory.

As the great entrepreneurs say, “don’t compete, monopolize.”


The Church’s Niche Market

 Eph 4:12  for the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ,

13  until we all arrive to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

The church is the revelation of THE MAN, Christ Jesus, upon the earth.

Eph 4:15  but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ;

The church grows up into THE MAN in all things.

This growth comes through the revelation of THE MAN within the church.

The function of church leadership is to facilitate and mediate the revelation of The Man so that the church can grow up into Him in all things.

Joh 12:32  32  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”

The church draws all people unto THE MAN, by propelling this internal revelation as external manifestation through spiritual gifts into the world.

Internal revelation and external manifestation.

This is the task of the church.

There is no other human entity that does this.

This is her global monopoly.

This is her 10 X better factor.

She needs to exploit this.

This is her niche market.


The World’s Most Important Laws

Sin as an entity has been blotted out from me by the blood of Jesus.

His blood is the world’s greatest eraser.

 Rom 6:6  knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, so that the body of sin may be done away with, that we should no longer serve sin.

The sin producing engine, the sinful nature, or my old man, died with me, when I  died with Christ on His cross.

Here are the three facts.

 # 1 Sin as an entity has been eared from my life by the blood of Christ.

 # 2 The old man, the sin producing engine, which manufactured all the sins which Christ had to erase, died with me, when I died with Christ.

# 3  When I died, I became a corpse.  I was taken out of the way in relationship to sin. A corpse cannot sin, though sin remains in the world. I am dead to sin, because a corpse is dead to sin.  Sin is not dead to me. We will study this in a bit. 

It’s amazing to know that I am not dealing with the monster of sin on these three levels, any more.

Ro 7:23  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

What I deal with is not sin as the monster, but with the principle or law of sin, called the law of sin and death which is in my bodily members.

This law is alive and well in the bodily members of every person.

This is what it means that though I am dead to sin because I am corpse, sin is not dead to me because of the law of sin and death.

This law states that every time I sin, it will create death in me.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

In Christ, if I obey Him, this law is kept at bay, or dormant in my members, by the greater law of the Spirit of life which is in Him.

But if I disobey Him,  or try to obey Him outside of His voice, I remove myself from the protection of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

The law of the Spirit of life is not outside of Christ, it’s in Him.

This sleeping but deadly law awakens and brings  me death because it’s no longer kept at bay by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

But it’s so important to know that I no longer fight sin, since the engine which produced it in my life is dead, the sins that were left were erased by Christ’s blood, and the fact that I am corpse makes me dead to sin.

If I try to fight sin I deceive myself.

I put my eyes on an object.

 It becomes an  unconquerable and intimidating animal which plagues me with sickness and bondage.

Worse than this is that I give my energies to something that is no longer real, no longer there.  

But how comforting to know, that sin, the mother of death, is gone as long as I follow the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

My fight is simply to keep it inactive by obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit who will  keeps it sleeping by the superior law of the Spirit of life.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

It’s  easier to fight a principle than an entity.

Ro 8:4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

So if I obey the Holy Spirit everything that God wants fulfilled in my life will come about by the greater principle of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. It’s automatic.

Several facts about these two laws.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

The universe’s two most important laws or principles are these found in Romans 8:2

Most of humanity finds them irrelevant.

Yet, everyone  is controlled by these two in one way or another.

Even Einstein’s theory of relativity, or the law of gravity are  insignificant if there are no people around to be influenced by them.

The law of sin and death is what causes people to get sick, old and die.

It assures us that every time we sin, we will produce  death.

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus guarantees every time  that we obey God through Christ it will produce an  eternal type of life in us.

Because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is stronger than the law of sin and death those who accept Him can life forever.  


The Law of the Thinning Air

I picked this up from entrepreneur Tim Ferris and his amazing book, “The Four Hour Work Week.”  It’s a must read in 2015.

Tim states that as one climbs a mountain, the air becomes thinner.

Astronauts use oxygen tanks in space because the air so darn thin.

Most air molecules compete with each other at lower levels.

At higher levels the competition gets scarce.

The same goes for every day life.

Competition is fierce at the mediocre levels.

The world is a herd of mediocre cattle.

Few strive for excellence.

But if you do, you will find yourself in a stratosphere void of competition.

Tim goes to say that it’s easy to become a billionaire because there is such scarcity of competition at such high levels.

Be crazy good! Be crazy innovative! Be the expert at something!

Figure out something to help the world than no one else does.

Suddenly you find yourself alone and no one to challenge you.

The whole world is opened to you.

I call it the law of thinning air.


Its All A Matter of Your Gut!

 Romans 6:9  knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death is no longer master over Him.

Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

Christ was raised from the dead, and the Christian was co raised with Him.

In Romans 6:9, the words for “knowing that” is oida.

Oida is gut knowledge.

This is not knowledge that you go to school to gain.

Oida means that “you know, that you know, that you know.”

When you see a girl with a blue dress, you know it’s blue. No schooling required.

In your gut, you know that Christ was raised? Oh yeah, we have no problem with that!

Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

But in your gut do you know that at the moment Christ was raised, so were you?

If you say yes, you are lying

With my head I knew that I’ve been co raised with Christ.

But for thirty six years I have not lived as such, clinging instead to, and governed by earth.

Today, this was settled in my gut.

I’ve been detached from earth’s dictates by sheer distance between it and me, because I am raised.

My life begun anew.

I am physically higher in distance above planet earth.

The laws of earth are not my governing principle.

Neither are politicians or the economy or anything else.

Sin and pain and sickness can no longer stick to to me.

I am physically above their heads so they can’t reach me with slimy fingers.

I am hovering far above the earth, looking down.

I’m living from the environment and culture of the heavens rather than the earth.

Eph 1:20  which He worked in Christ, having raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies,

 Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

God’s raising up is not the means to the end.

God raised up Christ to make Him sit.

So where did Christ end up sitting?

It’s on a throne made up of God’s glory. Every atom of it is glory.

God’s glory is more potent than all.

God’s glory is what transforms people from sinful temporal creatures, to the eternal and perfect.

Because Christ is seated, He functions from authority and rest.

This throne is physically above all demonic and angelic principalities and everything that has a name, which is everything.

Mt 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all he holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

So God raised us with Christ in order to make us sit with Him.

How does it feel to live a life seated on a throne made up of glory?

On massive cushion of glory is all that is around you.

This cushion blocks off all the stuff occurring on earth.

Everything ebbs from this throne in power, glory, authority and endless riches.

Is this you?  Is this your revelation? Is this what drives your gut?

We can go on and on.

The bottom line is that it’s all a matter of your gut.

An Angel Standing in the Sun

Re 19:17  Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the great supper of God,

How powerful is the sun?

In Revelations an angel is standing in it.

 Hebrews 1:13  But of which of the angels has he said at any time, Take your seat at my right hand till I put all those who are against you under your feet?

The Christian is given a seat with Christ on His throne at his right hand.

Angels do not have this honor!

Who is ultimately more powerful, they or us?

 Philippians 3:10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

The power belonging to a resurrection life which will last forever is greater than the power of the sun, which one day dies.

God will remove both sun and moon and His glory will be left.

Paul’s pursuit was to know the Christ in him experientially and progressively.

Secondly, was his quest to know the power belonging to Christ’s resurrection experientially and progressively.

This amazing power is gradually revealed as we obey.

It’s not what we do, but what Christ does through us.

It’s our observation of God’s resurrection power at work in us that is key to victory.

Someday our knowledge of this power will allow us to stand in the sun if it’s still there.

How much power do you have in you? Is it enough to stand in the sun?

Make it your goal to progressively and experientially know Christ’s resurrection power.

This is no easy task.

It takes time with Jesus.

Yet, very few things matter as much.


An Eternal Loss

 Our church model of  passivity and complacency creates Christians who never press in to discover and mature in their spiritual gifts. Our churches are full of people who are not contributing their part of bringing in the fullness of God.  Because the church is one body made of up of many members, complacent people rob others  of  the benefit of the fullness of God that should had been manifested through them. It is an eternal loss for God, His church and the world.


Baptizing in Lake Victoria, Kenya

The Face of Christ

 Rev 1:16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword: and his face was like the sun shining in its strength.

Our faces are mirrors of our souls.

Many of our faces exhibit pain, rejection, and insecurity.

But look at the face of the resurrected Christ in the above verse.

It’s the face of the unclouded sun, shining in all of its strength.

Can you look at the sun and not go blind?

Have we being co raised with Christ?

It’s reasonable then that our face should reflect an unclouded soul brightly discharging the glory of Christ.

Alas, how desperately we need our minds renewed by the Word of God.

One bad thing that the social media has created, is make us into entertainment hogs who laugh at dumb You Tube videos behind this face of pain and sickness.

If wed watch less and study God’s Word more, we could manifest a face like the sun shining in all of its strength. It’s called the face of Christ.
