Disagreement VS Relationship


There is nothing as destructive as to break off relationships with loved ones because of disagreements. You can agree to disagree. Disagreement done in love does not constitute rejection. But to allow disagreements to bring you to a point where you break off relationship, especially with a family member, is shortsighted and creates damage that will last a lifetime. One needs to be careful that in disagreements the sacredness and the value of the relationship is preserved. Once that a relationship is broken, it might take years to restore it. It’s always better to take the back seat in disagreement and preserve the relationship. I’ve seen one too many relationships shattered because of disagreement. Its sheer stupidity! It’s asinine! Be one, who takes the back seat in disagreement but is skillful in safeguarding the relationship.

What Is The Power of Forgiveness?


In the Navajo dialect, “Dine” is the word for “The People.”

My family lived among the American Indians from 1997-2005.

They were mainly the Navajo and Pueblo Indian Nations of New Mexico. We lived side by side to them in the small town of Pena Blanca

It’s been a privilege knowing these great people. There is so much that I can say about Native Americans. We have been hospitably received by them.

Something tells me that God will spark revival among them based on His principle that the last shall be first.

I discovered that God did not make it easy for me to preach to Native American Christians without first asking their forgiveness.  What the white man such as me has done to them throughout history in the Name of Jesus is inexcusable and irreprehensible.

One time my wife Mary and I were invited to preach at a large Navajo church in Ganado, Arizona, in the heart of the Navajo nation.

We had been video filming Holy Spirit outpourings in the Navajo Nation. The pastor wanted us to talk on the project which God had given to us. Our vision was to promote Christian television for Native Americans.

The church was packed with more than two hundred Navajo folks. Mary and I were the only white faces in the crowd.

We sat towards the back of the sanctuary. It was the only free seats. The pastor was to call me up once the worship concluded.

As the songs rang out God broke me. “How can you preach to these people without first asking them to forgive you and the white man for all the terrible things that you have done to them?”

I felt so small, so insignificant next to these great people.  I saw beauty in their faces, and the majesty of God upon them.

I realized the intense love that Jesus had for them and how wonderfully He had created them to be.  My heart broke with shame and remorse. I sat with my head hanging between my knees.

“We want to welcome Brother Alvarez from the Christian Indian TV Network, who is going to share with us what the Lord is doing with them,” The pastor’s voice rang out.

People clapped as I proceeded to the podium. I felt broken and weak. What could I say but the truth?

As I looked squarely at the mass of people nothing about the work with Native American television would come out of my mouth. I was almost crying, my heart broken in half.

Stammering and stuttering I said, “I was going to speak to you about our work with the Christian Indian TV Network, but as I sat back there God really broke me. He told me that before I could ever preach to you, I need to ask you to forgive me and the white man for all the wrong things that we have done to you. Will you forgive me and the white man?”

There was dead silence in the sanctuary.

One lady finally chimed up, “We forgive you Brother Alvarez.”

The service grounded to a dead halt.  People arose from their chairs and came up to the podium. Mary and I stepped into the river of people.  We all began hugging. Tears were flowing.  Words of love were uttered. The glory of God broke out. It was true revival!

One man came to me, “I was so bitter at the white man, but today God has set me free.”

Another man hung his bolo tie with a beautiful turquoise around my neck. A lady did the same to Mary and a turquoise necklace.

Needless to say, there was no discussion about Christian Indian Television.

The power of forgiveness is one of the greatest powers in the universe. Humbling yourself without defense or justification or asking what about the other guy is a great tool.

This is revival; this is the glory of God.

Repenting to the Dine is The Power of Forgiveness.

With our beautiful Navajo friends in Shiprock, NM

 

How Did Selena Change My Life?


I worked at Telemundo TV Network before going into full time ministry, and had the privilege of videotaping Selena and her band, The Dinos, about 5 or 6 times in the 90’s.

We had the top rated TexMex show called, “Padrisimo” which Selena frequented.

Her brother AB, her sister Suzette, and her group, were a pleasure to work with. They were fun, relaxed and unpretentious.

Selena and her family, the Quintanillas, were Jehovah Witnesses.  She later got married to Chris Perez, the group’s guitarist.

Selena was a “pizzaholic”. After our video shoots Telemundo would buy tons of pizza for the band.

At her last occasion in Telemundo, she sprinted up to the control room after the shoot where I was putting away the tapes, in a mad dash for pizza.

I was the only one there.

God told me to talk to her. The fear of man gripped me; or better to say, the fear of talking to an international star. I disobeyed God, and stayed away. This was to be my last encounter with Selena; one of her inhaling the pizza.

One month later, almost to the date, Yolanda Saldivar, one of Selena’s managers’ murdered her at a Holiday Inn in Corpus Christi, Texas. She shot her in the back. Selena ran across the pool of the Holiday Inn in panic. She bled to death. My understanding was that if she would have been able to lie down she would have made it.

That tragic lesson helped to free me from the fear or man and realized that when God tells you to do something, you MUST do it, and do it the first time. “Failing to obey quickly”, says Smith Wigglesworth “is disobedience.”

As for Selena, in the midst of international stardom, and in her early twenties, she was tragically taken from us. The producer of the show, a friend of hers, was devastated by the incident.  Her family, so closely knit was shattered.

We spent the following week at Telemundo working overtime to produce shows of the authentic eerie police audio tapes from the red truck where Yolanda Saldivar barricaded herself. A police mediator by the name of Larry coaxed Yolanda to turn herself in.

Yolanda blamed a lot of her actions to Selena’s father, Abraham Quintanilla. Human nature is sadly so funny.

We don’t know the day or the hour of our departure from this earthly realm to meet the Living God.

Jesus says, today is the day of salvation. Don’t mess around with your eternity. He is the only way to eternal life.

Another great, Philip Seymour Hoffman, left us yesterday, so suddenly.

It’s a tragic lesson that on my last time with Selena, she taught me, and taught me well.

Selena, as with many others, changed my life.

The You Tube Video link below was her last time at Telemundo. I was the video tape operator on all these clips and part editor.

I realize from the date of the video shooting that she was murdered twenty-three days later on Friday, March 31st, 1995.

Access All Areas


There is excellent jazz group by the name of Spyro Gyra.

Their live album is called “Access All Areas”.

The word access is a fascinating one.

Everybody wants access to something.

Google dictionary defines it as the right to approach, enter a place, and have the opportunity to use or benefit from something.

 Eph 3: 12  in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.

God is a God of mega access, who wants people to access the things of His kingdom.

The trick is that God’s riches are unsearchable because they cannot be accessed through the physical senses.

God has hidden them since Adam and Eve disobeyed and gave us re access when Christ came.

When the age of sin was introduced, man lost access to the things of God in the Garden of Eden. This garden was a physical representation of a portion of heaven.

Love shares all good things with the one whom is loved.  Love that cannot be shared is not love.

Every object in the Garden of Eden was flawless in its function, incorruptible in its nature, and eternal in its duration.

It’s funny that the Garden where Adam and Eve were at was called Eden. The word hedonism comes from Eden and is the doctrine that pleasure and happiness is the highest good. Eden means pleasure.

God kicked out Adam and Eve because of sin, and the rest is history.

Eden represents God’s eternal mindset for created man.

Gen 2:16   Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

17  but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die.”

 God cannot give sinful human beings physical access to this heavenly place lest they access it in their sinful condition, corrupt its flawlessness by sin, and eat from the tree of life and become eternal sinners. What a dangerous position.

Thus God kicked Adam and Eve out from the Garden.

He also made it inaccessible by making it invisible so that corrupt men could not tamper with it for their own sinful purposes.

Can you imagine politicians having access into God’s invisible things?

When Christ came He gave man re access to all of these places, but only through Him and only by revelation. When He abolishes sin, access will come back through our physical senses but only in a sinless body.

God wants to give us access into all areas.

Jesus who has become all things, has become the access into all areas.

Not by might, not by power, but by His revelation.

A Planet Called Deception


Matt 24: 4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Look continually to yourself that nobody will “planetize” you.

The word “deceive” in the Greek. It is the word “planet”.

In Greek mythology, planets were called wanderers or the wandering ones.

Thus, this suggests the word deception. A person whom is being deceived aimlessly wanders away from the truth. The word planet is also used for “error”.

In the United Sates we see the prince of the authority of the air using technology to “planetize” people.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Technology is an awesome tool which greatly benefits humanity and the work of the kingdom of God. The devil uses technology in the lives of those whom are not paying attention to their walks with God to cause them to planetize or wonder from the truth of the Word of God. Whereas Africa gets hit by a demon of poverty, the USA is getting wacked by a demon of distraction.

I am amazed at how many Americans the devil has planetized to cause them to look down at their technological gadgets.

When you get on an airplane to go to east Africa, you will find many looking down as well.  They, however, are looking down at their Bibles!

Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

“Many for will be coming upon the name of me, saying I am the anointed and will planetize many.”

The word “deceive” in verse 5 is in the active voice. This means that deceivers will actively planetize unassuming people who are not paying attention to themselves and their relationships with God.

2 Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

“For the mystery of lawlessness, or what is void of all law, is now energizing, until the one who has the power to detain and keep it in check even at present, is from the midst becoming.”

A mystery is something that is hidden or that lives in the darkness of secrecy. A mystery must be revealed, since it cannot be accessed through our physical senses.  A mystery once totally veiled is now progressively revealed.

At the moment that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the mystery of iniquity kicked in. Men in those days lived to be over 900 years of age. The progressive revelation of the mystery of iniquity has eaten up into the lifespan of mankind throughout the centuries.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy (non effectual) with the brightness of his coming:

And then will the Unlawed one will be uncovered whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth and will render useless and nonoperational with the epiphany of His presence.

This verse obviously talks about the Antichrist. The prevalent thing to notice here is that the Anti-Christ a man whom is void of all law, obviously a figure who thrives on anarchy, will be uncovered at a set season.

It does not take much to see the mystery of lawlessness, or better said anarchy, at work than in those who today contest that the legitimacy of the constitution is not prevalent or foundational to our country.

The voiding of the constitution if it were to succeed will bring anarchy.

Wherever the manifestation of Christ is, there is His work of making non effectual all that is sin.

9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

“Whose presence is in accordance to the energizing of Satan with every ability, signs and wonders found in what is pseudo.”

The word for “lying” in the Greek is pseudo. Something pseudo is a falsehood, a sham, something spurious.  What is pseudo, does not have to be entirely false. It just needs to contain enough half-truths to cause people to planetize from the truth.

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

“And with every seduction, guile, and deceitfulness of doing what is not right in the eyes of God.”

Every disobedience towards God brings guile and deception as it seduces you.  This mystery of anarchy is energized in all of those that without an agape or unconditional love for the Word of God do not heartedly welcome it into their lives. The Word of God must be loved and welcomed, there is no other way!

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

“And through this act of unwelcoming His Word, God sends them “ an energy of planetizing” for the purpose of them believing what is pseudo.”

This type of energizing is an activation that will cause people to wonder aimlessly into error for the express purpose of believing what is false.

Every Christian Should Be An Entrepreneur


Why should I sign up for government health insurance? The web site and state exchanges are plagued with massive security breaches, information and data misallocations and personal data sharing without my permission. Give me a good reason.

“Going the extra mile can give you insight and a good reputation, both of which attract opportunity. Many obvious opportunities are found in places no one else has bothered to venture. If you put in the extra effort to make a good project an even better one, or you get to know your equipment better than anyone else on your shift, you will see things others overlook and be in a position to make use of them. Leaders who need a job done think first of people they know who will do it well. If other people respect you for the quantity and the quality of your work, you will find yourself advancing past others who regard their jobs as drudgery. For all the extra service that you’ve rendered, you’ll find yourself more than amply compensated by opportunities others never grasp.” Napoleon Hill Foundation

“Accountability is about release, not restraint. When we set people free, the liberty and support we provide should cause self-discipline. Self-control is the only acceptable form of control in the church.” Graham Cooke

“It is a peculiarity of human relationships that it is virtually impossible for one individual to have a lasting positive influence upon members of a group of negative thinkers. Usually, it works the other way. You cannot maintain a positive, productive attitude if you spend all your time with negative people. Those who have wrecked their own lives (and usually blame their misfortune on others) are not the kind of people who will help you achieve success in your own life. Choose your friends and associates carefully, and refrain from complaints about your job, your company, or any individual. Spend your time with positive, ambitious people who have a plan for their lives. You will find that their optimism is infectious.” Napoleon Hill Foundation

The Word of God is a medicine which must be taken in huge daily amounts if the schizophrenia of our soul is to be cured. Jose Alvarez

Stop being a victim of circumstances and become a problem solver. This is what humanity seeks.  Jose Alvarez

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.  Steve Jobs

“Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer for the good of the community.”  Dale Carnegie

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Castro redesigned prayer. Beware of those who want to take Christ out of Christmas. They are not really offended. It’s an agenda of secularism. Jesus said that you will know them by the products of their lives. Jose Alvarez

#1. Keep the big picture in mind. There are always opportunities and possibilities, and thinking too small can negate a lot of them.

#2. Keep your momentum. Without momentum, a lot of great ideas go nowhere.

#3. Look at the solution, not the problem. Learn to focus on what will give results.  Donald J. Trump

An entrepreneur is a disrupter of the status quo. Jose Alvarez

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo da Vinci

Great leaders are great risk takers. They do it by themselves but we do it by the voice of the Spirit. The greatest risk taker was God who risked His only begotten son for humanity’s eternal salvation. Without risk and getting out of your comfort zone, you will not reach God’s destiny for you.  Jose Alvarez

To live, think and act like Jesus is the singularly most important thing to do on planet earth. Yet, it’s also the hardest. No man has ever come close to the entrepreneurial abilities of Jesus. No man has ever come close to thinking out of the box like He does. Jose Alvarez

You will never experience how much God loves you, until you repent fully from every known sin. Unrepentance in any area, keeps an open door to the demonic placed over you. The attack of the demonic, competes with the love of the Lord, and hinders you from knowing that love.  Jose Alvarez

The greatest entrepreneur in history is Jesus. His ideas went beyond Steve Jobs. He brought new electronics, but Jesus, a new human race.  Jose Alvarez

The greatest and most successful people and you and I have exactly the same commodity. 24 hours in a day. The difference between them and us is their ability to use this commodity more wisely.  Jose Alvarez

For me the hardest thing, and what I’ve failed most at, is daily obtaining from the Lord, first in the Spirit, to then see it in the natural. My life has been plagued with double mindedness which has caused many lost opportunities to obtain by faith. This is so important that Paul dedicates Roman Four to it. Yet, I can’t regret the past, but learn from it, and know that God is the God if the umpteenth chances.  Jose Alvarez

Rom 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

A great definition of counted or reckoned from Bakers NT Commentary

To obtain something that you did not previously have. The sign of true faith then is the ability to obtain something that you did not have. With great faith one should be daily obtaining new things from God. I have not done that but am pressing into it. Faith obtains clearly in the Spirit before having it in the natural.  Jose Alvarez

“When you focus your self-discipline on a single purpose, like sunlight through a magnifying glass on a single object, look out! The whole world will scramble to get out of your way, hold the doors open for you, and salute as you walk by.” Dan Kennedy. Entrpreneur.Com.

It is possible to go through life without ever accepting any responsibility, but such freedom from the cares of the world comes at an enormous financial cost. If you make it a practice to go out the back door when responsibility walks through the front, you will also miss out on the opportunities that always accompany responsibility. In almost any vocation, profession, or calling, your remuneration is directly proportional to the responsibility that accompanies your position. Make it a practice to volunteer for more responsibility or simply to assume it. There are times when you must get on with the task at hand without ever being formally told you’re in charge of it. If you demonstrate that you are a can-do kind of person, responsibility and the higher pay that accompanies it will come to you.  Napoleon Hill Foundation

“A religious spirit creates a poverty mindset. A poverty sprit is not about economics, it’s about living with meager possibilities. It’s about not understanding your real identity in Christ.”  Graham Cooke

Political correctness is proof that stupidity is contagious.  Bill Johnson

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do!  Steve Jobs

“At Healing Waters, you gave me a few prophetic words along the lines of a new season coming my way and to be in expectancy and waiting for a surprise and how it was going to be joyous etc. Two months after this pic was taken i moved to the mountains of southwest VA and started working full time in ministry (which I had NO idea was going to happen). I have to say – the Lord really used you to confirm what was about to happen and to encourage me and increase my faith!! Those times in that basement were amazing!!! i just wanted to say thank you for your obedience in doing what you do – because it makes a lasting impact on lives as it did on mine!!!  A message to me from my friend Sarah Elizabeth Berrios

No one can make you feel inferior unless you give them permission. Lolly Daskal

No one is too busy, it’s only a matter of priorities.  Steve Jobs

Carve out daily time to think, and dream with God’s mind and His ideas for you. Taken by a talk from Noreena Hertz

I was reminded today that our God loves the very rich, and the very poor, equally! Jose Alvarez

Christianity is not About Things but about the Revelation of a Person!  Jose Alvarez

Riley Alvarez, A Miracle of Prayer


Friday evening, July 19th, I received a phone call from my daughter Hannah, who lives in Virginia. Her voice was desperate, almost crying. Her two-year old Chihuahua, Riley, her baby, was being rushed to the emergency vet.

She told me that Riley was acting like an old man, hardly walking. His eyes were bloodshot and closed probably from pain. He had no appetite.

The vet took Riley into the examining room for what seemed an eternity.

Hours passed as Hannah and her fiancé waited in torturous anticipation not knowing what was occurring.

It was eight o clock. I got on my knees and prayed asking God for a miracle.

Finally the vet came out. The prognosis was not good. In reality, they did not know what was wrong with Riley. There was speculation that he had ingested rat poison. The doctor said that it appeared that Riley had been struck with by a car. His blood was not coagulating. The doctor said that Riley was in bad shape and might not make it. My daughter contemplated putting him to sleep. To keep him over night would have cost them $3000.00.

They chose to take Riley home. The vet armed them with antibiotics and steroids. The doctors never did found out what was wrong with the dog.

I immediately put Riley on our church prayer chain. This is a group of thirty folks who faithfully pray for urgent prayer requests.

Then I wrote to a number of faithful friends on Face Book to do the same. In all, fifty people could have prayed for Riley.

Saturday morning Riley slept for a long time. When he awoke he ran to Hannah’s kitchen and ate the rice and chicken that the vet had prescribed. By the afternoon his eyes were opened, and most of the red had disappeared. The he played with his toys and even ran to fetch them.

My family was amazed knowing that this was the power of prayer.

By Sunday afternoon, Riley was one hundred percent normal.

When Hannah’s regular vet phoned her very disturbed about the results given to him by the emergency vet, he was surprised, really, amazed.

Truly what happened to Riley was a miracle of prayer by faithful people and an Almighty and loving God who answers them

On behalf of the Alvarez family, we would like to thank you all for praying for our baby Riley and to a great God who answers prayer.

Revival! Northeast!


John 9:4b “Night is coming, when no one can work”

For America, revival is no longer the option; it’s the requirement, and her only hope. America has entered a night without a moral compass. The compass was lost, when she stopped valuing God. Now, no one can work to bring America out of the night, except God. The key is revival, where God sovereignly works.  

In 2007, Mary and I had a prospering ministry In East Africa, named Safari through the Word.

We lived in Kenya and ministered throughout the nation hosting Bible conferences.

We visited Uganda and Tanzania, and were courting invitations to minister in other countries.

In the midst of this God spoke to us; “I need you more in America than in Africa.”

At the end of 2007 we relocated to Miami, Florida.

Since then, we have been assistant pastors at Doral Vineyard.

The religious decline of America commenced in the 60’s when prayer and the Bible were removed from public schools.

Directly proportional to America’s rejection of God has been the loss of its moral compass.  Today, the USA is a ship agonizing on the waves of uncertainty, tossed to and fro by the whims of amorality and secularism.

The church has longed for revival for many years.

Today revival is no longer the option, it is the requirement, and America is ripe for it.

If the USA does not experience a spiritual awakening, I cannot imagine what she will become.

During trips to New York City to visit our daughter Lexy, God spoke about a coming revival to the Northeast.

We got connected with Pastors David and Sue Kim of Silver Springs Vineyard Church of Nyack, New York, forty-five minutes from Manhattan.

David and Sue have the same passion for revival in the northeast.

In March of this year we did four weeks of revival meetings at Silver Springs. Without advertisement except Face Book and word of mouth, they were filling up with folks not just from Nyack, but the Bronx, Brooklyn and New Jersey.

We saw a sovereign move of God.

During that trip we met with Pastor Greg Manalli, of Fellowship of Life Church, in Cheshire, Connecticut.

He has prayed for revival in the northeast for more than thirty years.

Pastor Greg showed us three paintings of a vision which he got in 1980’s,

In it the bellows of God blew revival winds into the New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts area with a great resultant harvest of souls.

The northeast is uniquely situated for a move of God which can touch millions at one time.  There is no other region like it. Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, and Washington DC, are all along the 1 -95 corridor and just hours from each other. Breaking revival in one area will quickly spread through this corridor.

Next year in March, we will move to Nyack from Miami to continue with this work of revival, as God shifts things into high gear.

To Subdue The Seemingly Unsubduable


Inside the Person of Christ are deposited and hidden of all of God’s blessings, riches, and treasures that benefit us today and forever.

Col 2:2  That their hearts may be comforted, being knit together in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

 Ephesians 3:8  Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

Look with me at two of the many riches that are hidden inside of Christ

Eph 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Greek (paraphrase): To Him who has power to perform in a way that is abundantly above and beyond all that we ask of Him, or think with our minds.

He can only do this however, according to, or limited to, or the “fencing in”, of the dunamis power that operates effectively within us.

 1 Cor 1:24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Greek paraphrase  “Christ; God’s dunamis power.”

Upon inspection of 1 Cor. 1:24, we find out that God’s dunamis power is not something that we ask God for!  Neither does it say that Christ gives to us God’s dunamis power.  This verse tells us that Christ HIMSELF IS God’s dunamis power.

This is why I always refer to what Watchman Nee taught the church at beginning of the 20th century, and of which it still has not gotten a hold of!

Brother Nee says that God does not give to us bunch of blessings.  He gave us one thing, His Son.

Hebrews 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

All that God is, and has for us, lives IN or INSIDE His Son.  God has given us His Son to dwell within us, as a treasure chest of all that He is, all of His possessions, and blessings.

The devil deceives the church by enticing it to ask God for a variety of blessings, when it should be asking the Lord for a spirit of wisdom and revelation.

This is so that Christ, God’s treasure chest, is revealed within each believer, along with all God’s bounties dwelling within Him.

 Eph 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

·Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God works within us a way which is abundantly above and beyond what we wish.  However, God’s activity is “limited to” or “fenced in by” the dunamis power that is manifested through our lives. This very power is what gives to God the ability to work effectively.

1 Cor 1:24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

In Corinthians, we see that this “dunamis power” is Christ Himself. Therefore, the quantity and quality of Christ’s revelation within us is the boundary or limit to which God is allowed to operate within us abundantly and beyond all that we ask or think.

Ephesians 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

All spiritual blessings occur in Christ (let’s say in the sphere or world belonging to His revelation).

The more is His revelation within us, the more that that the totality of God’s spiritual blessings already inside of Him, will become an experienced reality to us.

 Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Fullness, in New Testament terms, is the substance or makeup of an object that defines it to be what it is. The fullness of Coca Cola, is the fluid within the glass bottle that has all the ingredients, and formula, that labels it exclusively, and independently, of anything else in this world, as Coca Cola.

Inside the Person of Christ is deposited the very being, substance, and makeup of Almighty God which defines Him exclusively as God Almighty.

This Christ, which contains the fullness of Almighty God, has been given to us.

This is why in verse ten we find out that IN Christ, we are already and forever more complete.  Our experiential completion is equal to the manifested fullness of God as it is revealed in us. Once again, we must remember that the immense treasure of God’s fullness as experienced by us, is limited to, or fenced in by to the manifestation of Christ within our lives, who is also the power of God to effectively bring forth God’s fullness into our lives.

Do we need anything more than this?

How are these treasures revealed to us?

I Cor 1:23  But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

I Cor 2:2  For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

In both instances above, Christ crucified is in the Greek perfect tense.

The Greek perfect tense is defined, as a once and for all accomplished event with an eternal impact. Therefore, though Christ was crucified 2000 years ago, the effect of His crucifixion is as powerful for us today, as it was 20 centuries ago.  Because Christ is God’s treasure chest, the effects of His crucifixion dwell permanently inside Him.

This very Christ, still crucified today, has been given to us as another of the treasures that lives within Him.

Why does God give to us “the treasure of Christ as permanently crucified” to dwell within us? This is what I term as the “law of crucifixion” or “the law of the cross”.  A law tells us that under a specific set of circumstances, specific results will always occur.

·With our every individual act of obedience towards God, “the law of crucifixion” (which is the permanently crucified Christ) kicks in, resulting into what is described in the next two verses out of 2 Corinthians chapter four.

 2 Cor 4:10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

11  For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

The revelation of Christ, and the treasures within Him, becomes a progressive reality inside of us by obedience to God.  Every act of obedience towards God activates the law of the cross that reveals the treasure of “Christ crucified”, which destroys our self-life and manifests Christ and His treasures.

How do we become free?

 2 Cor 13:3  Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

2 Cor 13:3 tells us that The Christ which has been given to live within us, is always mighty and powerful in ability.  His might and ability becomes a reality in proportion to His revelation.

4  For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

The Greek further tells us in verse four, that in the same way that a tree lives from its roots as it obtains nutrients found in the soil, we must live our lives rooted in the power of God, as it is released in proportion to the revelation of Christ.

 Philip 3:21  Who shall change our lowly body, that it may be fashioned like his glorious body, according to the working by which he is able even to subdue all things to himself.

Another vital treasure dwelling within Christ, and one, which we will refer to in the rest of this study, is “the Christ whom subdues all things to Himself.”

To subdue, is a military term comparable to a general with an army in perfect submission, hierarchy, and order, beneath him.

One of the most important desires of Christ is to subdue all that is not of Him in this military and hierarchal order. The verses immediately below, all use the very same Greek word found for the subduing in Philippians 3:21; thus showing a vital part of the mind of God towards us in the finished work of Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:27  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

1 Corinthians 15:28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

 Ephesians 1:22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 Eph 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power (dominion) of his might (inner strength).

Christ ability to subdue is an absolute necessity for us, since it is the work of Christ to set us free.  Subduing however, can also have a very negative connotation.

Dictators, such as Hitler, Castro, and others, focused their whole lives on the subduing of people. Christ, likewise, focuses much of His work in subduing, but only of things that are evil and harmful to humanity.

In the case of evil dictators, the subduing of peoples is called dominating, or exercising dominion over them. This evil exercise of dominion accomplishes a power as it is carried out, called the power of dominion or domination, in proportion to the strength of the dictator.

In Eph 6:10 we find this exact principle at work.  Translated for us it commands us to be empowered in the Lord and in the domination or dominion exerted by His strength.

This dominion or domination is what gives the Lord the ability to subdue all things unto Himself.

Are we beginning to get the picture?  The revelation of Christ within us, triggered by the law of the cross through our obedience, reveals the Christ who dominates.

Eph 3:16  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened(dominion) with might (dunamis power) by his Spirit in the inner man;

·Greek: That God’s power deposited into your inner man through the Holy Spirit will be seen or translated as Christ’s dominion within you.

The results of this subduing or dominion whisks us right into verse seventeen.

17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

To dwell, is defined as an inhabitant being in comfortable control of his home, thus allowing him to live in the peace and authority which has been purchased through that control.

Christ desires to dwell in this very fashion within our hearts.  He can only do so in believers that fully obey Him, allowing “the Christ that dominates and subdues all evil” to set them free, so that He may dwell and exercise the full authority of the kingdom, through them.

Eph 1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty( inward strength) power,(outward dominion)

Greek paraphrase. The exceeding greatness of this power is funneled into those who continuously believe.  The inward strength of God, which is displayed as His outward dominion, is translated as the exceeding greatness of His power, which is funneled into the believer. This funneling is limited to the continual believing of the Christian, which in turn is defined as the uncompromising moment-by-moment obedience to God’s rhema word, or voice of the Spirit.

20  Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

He wrought : This is very powerful!

The Greek perfect tense is used with this verb.  As we know, the Greek perfect tense is an accomplished event in history, having an eternal impact.

Which He wrought, can be defined, as the working through, or the accomplishing of something with absolute effectiveness, resulting in its becoming fully operational.

The exceeding greatness of God’s power; the translation of the dominion of the strength found within God, is fully and eternally operational inside the Person of His Son!  This very Christ lives within us, beloved!

The effective and full operation of this dominating or subduing power can be proved in that Christ sat down at the right hand of the Father after His resurrection.  One who sits down can only do so after conquering all; it is the position of rest.

This is why we always see Christ sitting down in the parables of His kingdom and glory.  His sitting down is the result of His absolute victories, thus allowing for the release of His glory through the works of the kingdom

Matthew 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 19:28  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Matthew 26:64  Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

 Eph 1:21   Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Herein is another aspect of God’s dominion fully operational within Christ, in that He was raised FAR IN DISTANCE above all that is opposed to Him.

22  And put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

The full and effective operation of the exceeding greatness of God’s power inside of Christ, is not only witnessed that in all things to Christ.

He rose far above them in physical distance, but they are now likewise subdued in a military fashion under His feet.

Finally and most important, THIS VERY CHRIST which has the full operation of the exceeding greatness of God’s power resident within Him, has been given to live within us!

23  Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Greek: Fills all things in all people.

To fill all things in all people, is the fullness of Christ’s revelation, which reveals the Christ who has the full operation of God’s dominating power, which sets us free!
