The Tale of the Caribbean Island


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. 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”?

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.

Suppose that you and your family go on vacation to a beautiful secluded island. One morning, meandering through the ivory  sands, a rusty corner of barely protruding object grabs you attention.  You uncover a tarnished treasure chest hidden by English pirates.

When you break open the chest you find it loaded and overflowing with pounds of gold and silver bars, precious gems, brilliant stones, huge diamonds, superb rubies, exquisite rings, brooches, and more.

Is it more logical to have you and your sons close and secure the chest, grab it by the handles and wheel it so that you can forever enjoy  and use it.

That is one alternative!

However, you chose to sit for hours under the scorching sun of the Caribbean skies, and laboriously search through the chest for items of jewelry that your family needs.

You dig and pull out jewelry, breaking your nails and cutting your hands.

Finally you quit the process totally exhausted.  In a deep frustration your family finds the fifteen or twenty pieces that they need.  You leave the treasure chest in the sand, nearly full with hundreds pieces of jewelry now discarded around it, and go home.

Would you agree that this family acted it stupidity?

Yet this is a perfect description of the church, and its relationship to its understanding of the Lord Jesus.

Inside the Person of Christ dwells or is hidden all of who God is, all of what God wants, and wants to give to the church, and all that God possesses for this world and for the next.

Here is the secret.

When Christ is revealed or manifested in us, all the treasures within or inside of Him will be manifested along with Him.

The more revelation of the Son of God in you, the more will be the revelation of all that dwells IN HIM.  It is an automatic reality.

The secret to the manifestation or revelation of the Son of God in us has to do with our continuous obedience to Him.

The more that we obey God’s voice by His Holy Spirit, the more that Jesus Christ who dwells in our spirits will become revealed or manifested

The less that we obey God; the less will be the manifestation of the Son of God in our lives.  It is that simple!  It’s all proportional.

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?

CHRISTIANITY COMPLETELY HINGES UPON THE REVELATION OF THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST, OR THE FAILURE THEREOF.  OUR PERSONAL SUCCESS, AND THE SUCCESS OF OUR CHURCHES, IS DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO HOW MUCH THE PERSON OF CHRIST IS REVEALED!

Satan has successfully deceived the church, to divert it from understanding and valuing the supreme importance of the revelation of the Son of God in its midst.  Our obedience to God is shallow, compromised, and limited; our knowledge of the Word of God is very poor at best.

Secondly, we have been deceived to allow the second most important truth in Christianity to slip right through our hands!

Christ has made you complete! But it’s experienced in proportion to how welcomed God is to take residence in you. Is He guest or family?

THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT TRUTH IS THAT THE UNDERSTANDING OF, AND THE EMBRACING OF THE CROSS-OF CHRIST, IS GOD’S ONE AND ONLY MEANS TO REVEAL THE PERSON OF CHRIST! And with that the whole treasure chest in Him!

Behold The Pickle!


Rom 6:3 Or are you ignorant that whoever are baptized into Christ Jesus, are baptized into His death?

Biblical baptism is unlike our Western act of immersing someone, or sprinkling with water.

The old process of transforming a cucumber into a pickle was called baptism. This is the true baptism of the Bible.

The cucumber was “baptized” INTO a vinegar solution. The vinegar worked back THROUGH the cucumber to “pickle “or alter it. The cucumber was converted into something that it was not. When a person accepts Jesus Christ, he becomes baptized into Christ. The arriving Holy Spirit immerses, or “pickles” the person INTO everything who Christ is, and all that He went through.

When you get rid of the old man there is no greater gravitational attraction than to plunge headfirst into the extraordinary Person of Jesus Christ and be pickled into every fiber of His DNA, splendor, power and perfection.

Any aversion to this means that you are more in love with your old man than Jesus.

“Spiritual work flows with the current of the Holy Spirit without constraint and strength of the flesh.” Watchman Nee

You need to be Pickled! What is Biblical Baptism?

In the days of Christ there was a recipe to create a “pickled” vegetable.  It was said that a vegetable was BAPTISED into THE LOCATION or SPHERE of a vinegar solution.  After a while, the vinegar WORKED INSTRUMENTALLY BACK through the vegetable and “pickled” it. Tofu, likewise, acquires the taste and texture of any food that it is baptized into.  We can say that with whatever food the tofu is BAPTISED INTO, it is INSTRUMENTALLY influenced back by that food to make the tofu like it.

John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, (Jesus lives continually in the domain of the Father’s world  and ye in me( We must be therefore located in the domain of Christ’s world), and I in you.(So that Christ can instrumentality work back through us, by pervading, influencing, and affecting.)

The Key To Miracles: Understanding the “energemas” of God.

1Co 12:6 and there are apportionments of operations “energema”, yet the same God Who is operating all in all.”

1Co 12:10  To another the working  “energema” of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

An energema is the result, the outcome, or product, of something which has been energized. It is what is tangible and clear to the human senses because it has been completed and manifested. It makes sense then, that we find energema when we discuss the miracles of God. A miracle is the result, the outcome, the tangible and visible product of an invisible model or archetype which God has in the heavenlies.

Tapping into God’s Energy By Your Spiritual Gifts

Your responsibility to find out and function in every gift, ministry, and calling within you, is the key to God’s energy in you.

 Philemon 6  that the sharing of your faith may become effective (energized) in full knowledge of every good thing which is in us in Christ Jesus.

Learning to hear God’s Voice

Derek Prince compared our knowing the Lord’s will to the lining up of three buoys in a rocky channel of water .

Buoy # 1 is the written or logos Word of God.  If what you and I want is not in the written Word of God, we might as well not even entertain the thought of it.

Buoy # 2 is a specific rhema word, or the voice of the Spirit concerning what we ask.

Buoy # 3 : This is always the last buoy to line up and is the one that most of the times causes us the most difficulty.  This third buoy represents the timing of God rhema word.  It can also be called, “obtaining the right circumstances.” 

God’s Power

Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (dunamis power) to us-ward who believe, according to the working (energy; energia) of his mighty (outward dominion; kratos) power (inner strength; ischus)

What is the overcasting and transcending ability ( dunamis) of the same funneled into us who continually believe according to the energy put out as external dominion power (kratos) from his internal resident strength, ( ischus).

  • In the cartoons of Popeye the Sailor Man, Popeye ate a can of spinach, which gave to him inner, inherent or resident strength. The spinach is the revelation of the Son of God in us.
  • The inner inherent strength that the spinach gave to Popeye is called ischus.
  • This strength was manifested as bulging muscles exercised in outward dominion, or domination, which would wipe out Pluto, his archenemy.
  • This strength was manifested as bulging muscles exercised in outward dominion, or domination. This is called kratos,

 Holy Spirit Confidence

CONFIDENCE in the voice of God is the great catalyst of energy that releases the gifts and the power of God.

Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and ACCESS with confidence by the faith of him.

Confidence by faith gives us boldness with God and most important of all, ACCESS to the things of the kingdom of God. Any incremental increase in our confidence will exponentially increase ACCESS to the things of the kingdom.

 Ministry by Faith

2 Cor 4:18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

We contemplate and put our attention from moment to moment on what we cannot see with the physical eyes. For what is seen with our physical eyes have a short-lived and seasonal effect.  What is seen in the Spirit however has an impact that lasts forever.

Romans 4:17  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead (corpses), and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

This tells us that the nature of our God is to call forth the things, which are still not physically in existence as having the same reality and essence of things, which are in existence.  This is one of the facets of faith! Abraham’s faith in God was so great, that out of corpse like circumstances, and out of things, which in reality do not exist, God made Abraham into a father of many nations and millions of people. This is called the faith of Abraham.

Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

“The things yet not seen” was what was well known to Noah, or what had a three dimensional substance to him.  The physical world acquired no reality or became simply two-dimensional.

8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

He was called was in the NOW tense.

He obeyed-  A military submission to hearing”

“ He went out no knowing” Having nothing in the physical realm which was set and standing before him so that he could grasp and follow.  He had no acquaintance with what God had called him to do.

27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Moses dominated and endured by seeing with discernment in the Spirit what was invisible or void of discernment in the natural or to the human eye. His substance was the voice of the Holy Spirit.  The natural world was not a reality to him.

 How the Power of God Flows Through You?

Luke 5:17  And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to (INTO) heal them.

Luke 6:19  And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

 Ministry In the Darkness of Faith

2 Corinthians 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

God speaks out of from a source that is rooted in the darkness of our spirits.

2 Cor 4:18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

We contemplate and put our attention from moment to moment on what we cannot see with the physical eyes. For what is seen with our physical eyes have a short-lived and seasonal effect.  What is seen in the Spirit however has an impact that lasts forever.

1 Cor 13:12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

For we spiritually see or glance through a mirror in enigmas.

Psalms 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

I will speak to you as a prophet in enigmas.

 Gods Anointing Flows In Proportion to His Will

Eph 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

All things energizing according to the counsel of His will

1 Cor 12:11  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

All things energizing according to the counsel of His will

 Ministry in the Holy Spirit

Eph 3:7  Whereof I was made a minister (DIAKONOS), according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

The minister of God as a diakonos is the believer in his or her service to God in accordance to their spiritual gifting’s, ministries and callings.

Col 1:29  Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working (ENERGY), which worketh (IS ENERGIZED) in me mightily( IN DUNAMIS POWER) .

Galatians 2:8  (For he that wrought effectually(THAT ENERGIZED) in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty(ENERGIZED)  in me toward( AS I FUNNELED (His ministry) INTO) the Gentiles:)

John 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Greek- Potamos- A river, flood or torrent. A flood can sweep down torrentially and even carry houses away. How can we stop the gushing of springs or the flow of a river?

John 5:17  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto ( My Father never ceases working in the Spirit) and I work.(and I work externally, using exactly the same procedures and in exactly the same manner in which I see instinctively the Father working within me.)Worketh   is defined in exactly the same way that a company strives to be successful in producing the services for which it is in business for.

Hitherto: Until now. My Father has been continually at work, producing the services that pertain to the business of the kingdom of God in an unbroken flow, right through all of your Sabbaths; and even now as we speak, He works.

And I work:  I, in like manner.

John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth (To habitually glance at what the Father does in the Spirit.  This is not discernment with understanding) the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. ( Greek word “homos” )

Glancing in the Spirit to what the Father does, gives us that momentary intuitive knowledge, which on many occasions, is enough for us to step out in faith and do with identicalness what we have acquired instinctively in our spirits.

John 5:20  For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

For the Father is fond of the Son and shows Him all things that He does in a way that can be proven and for proof, and greater than these works will he show you with the goal in His mind that you may wonder.

Romans 12:6  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

7   Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

Greek: Ministry in the sphere of (our) ministry (Ministry must be executed in the realm of the ministry to which we have been called to; no more and no less.  This is what Paul means by Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering.  In other words let us minister only in the ministries that God has called us to.  “The above scriptures show us the importance of knowing our ministries and being devoted to them.

Romans 12:8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth,(imparting)  let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth,( they that are placed at the front) with diligence(with earnestness and godly haste to rule); he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness (a hilarious attitude)

He or she that is exhorting in the sphere of exhortation (He or she that are called to exhort, let them exhort with the type of exhortation that the Lord has called us to specifically perform.)

I Cor 14:3  But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification(the building up of the body of Christ), and exhortation,(encouragement , admonition, and warning) and comfort.( to persuade, arouse and stimulate into Christian action)

1 Corinthians 14:26  How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

Greek: What is it brethren?  Whenever the time may be that you assemble yourselves, each of you a psalm (hymns; a means of putting OT psalms to music) has, a teaching has, a tongue has, a revelation has, an interpretation has.  All things for building up let it be done.

Prophets

Numbers 3:16  And Moses numbered them according (at) to the word (Heb: mouth)  of the LORD, as he was commanded.

Numbers 3:39  All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment (Heb: mouth)  of the LORD, throughout their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

If we carefully observe the two scriptures above we see Moses and Aaron executing God’s commandments in accordance to the “mouth of the Lord.”

The greatness of the prophet is his or her limitation to live by the voice of the Spirit.

Deuteronomy 4:2  Ye shall not add ( you shall not cause an addition or an exaggeration  to what the Lord has spoken) unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish( subtract, withdraw, or to hold back)  ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Num 22:18  And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond ( pass over or cross over to the other side of; like crossing over a river ) the word ( Hebrew: the mouth) of the LORD my God, to do less or more.(to do the insignificant or what is great.)

19   And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.

The prophet must speak forth in the accuracy of, the intent of God’s heart, and with the same degree of intensity of what the Lord Himself speaks.

38   And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power(dunamis) at all(dunamis) to say (intensive) any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak ( intensive verb).

Jer 23:28  The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell (recount, rehearse and declare the dream with the accuracy, the intention of God’s heart, as well same emphasis that God had in His telling of it.  Hebrew emphatic verb)) a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak (As accurately and thoroughly as God gave it to him or her; emphatic verb) my word faithfully(reliably and with certainty).

Spiritual Laws

1 Thessalonians 5:19  Quench not the Spirit.

Do not extinguish the Spirit.

Acts 18:25  This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.

Fervent: To boil with heat, be hot `and it is used with the boiling of water.  Boiling when it comes to liquids or glowing when it comes to solids.

Romans 12:11  Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

Not irksome in what has to be dispatched for the Lord’s but fervent in Spirit. Bond slavery and service to the Lord must be in the glowing and boiling of the Spirit.

1 Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual

“Comparing” is defined as joining together, compounding, and combining. We must minister out as closely and accurately as possible to what the Lord shows us within.  Our ministry must be a compounding, combining, and a joining together with the rhema word of the Spirit, the voice of the Spirit, and a compounding, combining and joining together of the means that He wishes for us to execute that rhema word, which is the voice of the Spirit.

 Identity and Being: Who We Are In Christ

The creation of a supernatural humanity.

Our being, or consciousness, is the reality of who we are in heaven and not a product of our thoughts and feelings. Dr. Joe Dizpena

Governed strictly by the Word of God and not by what can be seen.

A righteousness consciousness vs. a sin consciousness.

A child of God DNA consciousness vs. an earthy genealogy DNA consciousness

A son/ adoption consciousness vs. a fear/ bondage consciousness.

Having the “God man” consciousness vs. a “me” consciousness.

Living in the present from the future rather than in the present from our past.

What Happens At the New Birth?

  • Watchman Nee’ illustration of being In “The Book.”
  • What six events is the person baptized into when “born again?”
  1. When Christ was CRUCIFIED, we were CRUCIFIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.
  2. When Christ DIED on the cross, we DIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.
  3. When Christ was BURIED in the tomb, we were BURIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.
  4. When Christ was BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE, we were BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.
  5. When Christ ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN, we ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.”
  6. When Christ SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER TO RULE AND REIGN, we SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER TO RULE AND REIGN “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.

What Is Biblical Baptism?

  • The process of pickling a vegetable, and the person being pickled into Christ through baptism, are the same thing.

A Study in the Human Spirit of a Spiritual Person?

  • 1 Corinthians chapter two and the difference between the soul and the spirit
  • Who Is The New Man?

Eph 4: 22 That ye put off (THE PROCESS OF PUTTING OFF UNTIL THE OLD MAN IS COMPLETELY PUT OFF; THE DEGREE THAT THE OLD MAN IS PUT OFF IS OUR SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY; NOT THE LORD’S) concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

24 And that ye put on (THE PROCESS OF PUTTING ON UNTIL THE NEW MAN IS COMPLETELY PUT ON; THE DEGREE THAT THE NEW MAN IS PUT ON IS IN PROPORTION TO OUR SPIRITUAL LABOR, NOT THE LORD’S) the new (new in kind, quality, substance and essence) man, which after God is created ( aorist tense) in righteousness and true holiness.(HOLINESS AS A MANIFESTATION OF GODLY CHARACTER PRODUCED BY THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS ACCURATE, PRECISE, AND GENUINE ABOUT GOD)

Col 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off (THE PROCESS OF PUTTING OFF UNTIL THE OLD MAN IS COMPLETELY PUT OFF; THE DEGREE THAT THE OLD MAN IS PUT OFF IS IN PROPORTION TO OUR SPIRITUAL LABOR, NOT THE LORD’S)) the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on ((THE PROCESS OF PUTTING ON UNTIL THE NEW MAN IS COMPLETELY PUT ON; THE DEGREE THAT THE NEW MAN IS PUT ON IS IN PROPORTION TO OUR SPIRITUAL LABOR, NOT THE LORD’S) the new(in age and youthfulness) man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created ( aorist tense) him: (THE FULL AND PRECISE AND ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF the recently made and new kind of, unused, unprecedented, novel, and unheard of life THAT WILL PRODUCE THE IMAGE OF CHRIST)

The cross of Christ is the instrument for revelation of Christ in our spirit and why?

Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

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 alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

The fivefold process of uncovering the hidden Christ in our spirit.

  • The Rhema Word, The Mystery, The Pattern, Wisdom, and The Revelation of Christ

The Rhema Word

Mt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (rhema word) that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Lu 3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word (rhema word) of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

Lu 5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word (rhema word) I will let down the net.

Joh 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words (rhema word) abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Ro 10:8 But what saith it? The word (rhema word) is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word (rhema word) of faith, which we preach;

Ro 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word (rhema word) of God.

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the (rhema word)

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word (rhema word) of God:

Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word (rhema word) of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Heb 6:5 And have tasted the good word (rhema word) of God, and the powers of the world to come,

Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word (rhema word) of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Mysteries

Mt 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Ro 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began,

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Eph 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Col 4:3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

Patterns or blueprints

Ex 25:9 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

Ex 25:40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

1Ch 28:11 Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,

Heb 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

 The Process of Transformation into Christ’s Image

Ro 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought (worked out)by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

The Renewed Mind and the Redeemed and Reconciled Body.

  1. A discussion into why the mind must be renewed and the human body must not be in opposition to the renewed mind which is submitted to the Holy Spirit?
  2. A discussion into the work of neuroscientist Dr. Joe Dizpensa, author of “Evolve Your Brain” and “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” in light of what the Bible says about the renewed mind and redeemed and reconciled body.

 The Mind

 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.

Ro 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Ro 12:2 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.

Eph 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind ,

Eph 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind ;

The Body

Ro 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body , that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Ro 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Ro 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Ro 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Ro 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body , ye shall live.

Ro 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body .

1Co 15:40 There are also celestial bodies , and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body ; it is raised a spiritual body . There is a natural body , and there is a spiritual body .

Php 1:20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body , whether it be by life, or by death.

Php 3:21 Who shall change our vile body , that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body , according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Glorification – Living In Heavenly Places

Romans 8:29 Because whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.

30  Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

Bible Tips


  1. The spirit of a tyrant is that of Goliath who mocked Israel or the Pharaoh who controlled it. Every tyrant mocks and controls the nation which he governs. A David and Moses can defeat him through God.
  2. God created Adam and Eve with a free will to accept and reject Him. If He did not, He would have a bunch of Stepford Wives. Some want free will not to obey God but not free when it comes to God managing tragedy, sickness, war, premature death and disasters.
  3. The one thing that trumps so called faith in God is encounter and experience with the God in whom you put your faith. Real faith in God is belief, plus encounter, plus experience. To believe in God is not just mental ascent, but an initial encounter with Him which leads to a life time of intimate experience with Him.
  4. What’s the hullabaloo with the Big Bang theory? The Bible talks about it. It’s our trying to explain it without God which makes it big news. I don’t understand why people use science to try to disprove God. Science glorifies God. Science is the explanation of how God works.
  5. A leader makes a decision and executes it, quickly, then everybody reacts. Giuliani
  6. One of the greatest problems in the church is that folks do not know how to accredit their inheritance by faith.
  7. Someone said this. Clarity in communication trumps persuasion.

  9. Watchman Nee said that the greatest bondage on the church by the devil is to create passive minds and thinking.

  13. The conditions of life are so different in the everlasting state that time conditions of life and happiness are no longer needed. Scott.
  14. Living heavenly places entails the renewal of the mind to enter its environment where all is increase, beauty and limitlessness.
  15. Many a prophecy is conditional. It takes obedience to make it come to pass. If we disobey God, it will remain a prophecy.
  16. Moses is the father of successful business growth using God’s wisdom and prudence.
  17. Truth simply stands. It never needs to defend itself and at the end always wins.
  18. Banks who want to teach about counterfeit bills have employees handle the real stuff and not the fake. So it is with truth.
  19. If the cross which kills who we were and uncovers who we are in Christ is not preached, how can the church become free?
  20. Holy Spirit obedience activates the law of the cross which puts to death who we were pre Christ and uncovers who are in Him.
  21. Our burial with Christ where everything becomes dust gives us the right to be recreated again by the breath of the Holy Spirit.

  30. When you begin seeing how beautiful is the Jesus inside of you, you’ll start to feel beautiful.
  31. The rule of God is greater than the laws of men. Graham Cooke @emergingusa #bibletips #BibleStudy
  32. The church is a man and his name is Christ Jesus.
  33. The devils greatest lie on the church is to place the function of the church in the hands of the few and encourage others to be pew sitters
  34. Watchman Nee said that the Christian life is three words. Sit, walk, stand. He is so right!
    The Christian life. Christ works in and we work out, what He worked in.
    The Christian life is position and manifestation. Position can’t be seen.
    Manifestation is the experience of position. It takes obedience.
  35. A Christian is a pickle. A cucumber is pickled when baptized in vinegar. A Christian is pickled to Christ’s image when baptized in the Spirit.

  46. Poverty is a demon. Spiritual warfare is dong the opposite. One way to break out of poverty is to give yourself out of it.

  48. God will create the most for us in the visible when we focus the most on His invisible.
  49. All have a conscience regardless of belief. If you deny the existence of God, you deny yourself, for God speaks to all in the conscience.
