Tofu


What is the Baptism of the Holy Ghost? It’s kind of like tofu. I will explain.

When John the Baptist baptized the Lord Jesus River for the repentance of sins, the Lord was submerged underneath the water. This act of submergence and His emerging out of the water had much more significance than the simple physical act of plunging into the waters of the Jordan.

Symbolically speaking, when the Lord was immersed in the water He portrayed the burying of humanity’s old life without God.

His coming up out of the water was symbolic of humanity coming forth out into a new life free from sin, to serve the living God.

In my case, days after being baptized into the Atlantic Ocean, I started to experience a freedom from sinful habits that I had not been able to until then. The simple act of submersion and emergence from those cold February waters had an influence or effect back on me.  The immersion and emergence from the waters had in a way set me free.

The baptism of in the Holy Spirit has the very same effect on us, just in a different dimension.

Mark 1:8  I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you (Immerse, and submerge you) with ( Greek grammar case of location. Not “with” but “in”; residing within a location, or a domain, world and its sovereignty) the Holy Ghost.

While John baptized INTO the water for the forgiveness of sins, the Lord Jesus baptizes INTO the Holy Ghost.  Why is the baptism in the Holy Spirit so important?

Mat 26:41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing,  (Greek: a “ready mind”)  but the flesh is weak.

The world of the Spirit is as that of a “continual ready mind” or a mind that is in perpetual state of readiness, while the world of the flesh is weak and infirm.

Biblical baptism entails the imbuement or submersion of one object into a second object. The submergence or immersion of the first item into a second item places the first item into the location or inside the world or domain where the second item resides.

Once within the sphere of the second item’s world, this latter one can now exercise its influence back upon the first one, even to the point of changing the first item to resemble it, by permeating it with its qualities and characteristics.

The effect of the second item working its effect and influence back through to the first item as it permeates it and changes it is called the instrumentality of the second object.

Galatians 3:27 tells us that we are located in the sphere of the world of Christ, so that Christ can work instrumentally back through us, by affecting us, to conform us to His image.

Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ(submerged into the domain, sphere, or world of Christ’s influence and sovereignty ) have put on Christ (now wear Christ, whom as clothes which totally cover us, influences and affects back through us to conform us into His image.)

I once read an excellent example of 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.

Pneumatism


1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit(pneuma) and soul(psyche) and body(soma) be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heb4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul (psyche) and spirit( pneumatos) , and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The role of the human spirit is generally a passive or inactive one.  The soul on the contrary is always active.  Our spirit works as a protective womb for the presence and the motions of the Spirit of the Living God within us.  It is very much connected with our hearts, and our consciences.

John 15:26  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me

The role of our spirit is not to do, but to give an eye witness account.  Our homes have no other function but to house its dwellers.  The building is really of no importance.  The activities that take place within it are the ones of consequence what our Lord does.

We are “character witnesses who observe, and give evidence to the reputation, conduct, and moral nature” of the indwelling Christ to a dying world. (Meridian Webster dictionary definition).

It is only God’s activity that counts, and often it has little to do with ours.  Our busy activities many times get in the way of the Lord.  The body of Christ gets deceived because it does so much instead of just being.  Does a bottle work, or does it simply demonstrate what is inside?  God does need a lively Christian with a head full of bustling programs and agendas.  He needs a dead one that will display Him.  Remember, we are dead!  Christ is the one living in us.

The soul is a combination of our mind, will, intellect and emotions.  Its function contrary to the spirit is not to reveal, but to actively work and choose.  It is the mediator between our bodies and our spirits.

The soul is constantly involved in a struggle to choose between the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the promptings of our carnal flesh, our un renewed minds, the world, and the trickeries of Satan.  The Spirit of the living God within us, must become manifested enough to win the battle for the soul.

The responsibility of the soul then is to submit itself continuously to the Holy Spirit.  When it does that, the soul will take us in the ways of the Lord.  God must bring our will to a point where it has no more desire than to submit itself to the wishes of the Holy Spirit.

Our emotions must be healed and stilled before the Lord by the cross, so that we can attend to that “still small voice within”.

Immature believers, or believers that are still bound in the throes of demonic oppression or past hurts, are unable to discern clearly the quiet voice of the Lord within.  Because the emotions are still screaming out, they drown out the presence of the Lord.

All deliverance, inner healing, counseling, and therapy must be directed at setting us free to hear and uncompromisingly obey the Holy Spirit.  Healing is the means of becoming spiritual or pneumatic Christians.  Our mind and intellect must be renewed by the word of God so that it can adequately understand what the Holy Spirit wishes.

Big Fruit


The rhema word, differs from the logos word.

Jesus is called the Logos Word.

The Logos Word describes an idea or concept.

Jesus defined to humanity the concept of the invisible Heavenly Father.

The rhema word on the other hand, is a specific and living word given by the Holy Spirit to meet you in a specific circumstance.

It’s essential for us to learn to hear and live by the rhema word.

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

The disciples of Jesus had been painfully laboring throughout the night to catch fish, and had produced little.  This story tragically defines the activity of our churches.

Much of our work has been spent upon programs, agendas, and committees, and little upon the guidance, strategy, and power of the Holy Spirit through the rhema word.

The church is notorious for sowing much and reaping little because of this

If we would get less busy and spend more time listening to and doing the rhema word of the Holy Spirit, big fruit is guaranteed.

Notice that the “one rhema” of Jesus brought a huge catch.

Without ever compromising the gospel of the power of God, the church must get the strategy of God through His rhema word to be relevant in this social media culture.

Christian leaders must become spiritual entrepreneurs by the rhema word.

Fruit Bearing


Col 1:5  For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

Col 1:6  Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

These are remarkable scriptures. They tell us much of how we should live as believers, as well as manage our local assemblies.

The gospel, in its written “logos” form, and through the spoken “rhema word” is a fruit-bearing dynamo.  Fruit bearing in the kingdom of God is made up of two dynamic features.  God always begins by working first in our spirits, and outward to our bodies, bringing spirit, soul, and body into the loving subjection of His voice. The word of God has the dynamic ability to first work inwardly in each of us, sanctifying us and filling us with God’s presence.

The infilling of God’s presence through His word then works outwardly to produce our spiritual gifts and ministries and compels us to go into all of the world for Christ’s sake. This is the two fold fruit bearing operation of the Word of God.

Fruit bearing through the word of God must meet two requirements if its two fold dynamic power is to be functional in us.  The end of verse six in Colossians says, “and knew the grace of God in truth:” The word “knew” is the Greek word “epiginosko”.  This word describes knowledge, which probes, and is thorough, accurate, and complete. So much so that this type of knowledge transforms us.

Of course, we won’t attain to a full knowledge of the things of God until we end up in eternity.  But our earthly motivation should be ever to grow more and more into this accurate, thorough, knowledge of God.

Secondly, is the word “truth”. The Greek word “aleithia” or truth, describes what is genuine, accurate, and in accordance with facts.  We must so know the word of God to comprehend fully the facts about God. We must quarry the gold mines of the gospel deeply to know accurately and comprehensively the genuineness of the things of God.  For us to benefit from the dynamic fruit bearing qualities of the gospel we must know it in full knowledge and truth.

God will not free us if what we think to be truth, is not. Our opinions are not worth a hill of beans if they don’t line up with the word of God.

Many teachings today are based on opinions and not the truth of the Bible.

They will do little in your life, and lead into greater error.

Glory


Eph 3:21  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

The church’s most important job is to bring forth the glory of the Lord into all of the earth, and throughout all eternity.

Glory is the invisible God becoming visible.

The glory of God is of supreme importance.  Through it, men are ushered into eternal salvation, physical healings take place, people are set free from demonic oppression, spiritual gifts are displayed, and revival of cities and nations that ultimately change civilization are started and carried out.

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

The key to all of humanity’s needs, past, present, and future, lie locked in the Person of Christ.  To the proportion that the invisible Christ becomes visible to mankind by His glory, is to the exact proportion that all of mankind’s needs will be met and answered forever.

The church of Jesus Christ is GOD’S ONLY UNIVERSAL INSTRUMENT, which can make Him visible by the fullness of 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, personal and intimate way to people.

God’s glory manifested through the church becomes the object of the world’s praise to God.  The more glory, the more praise.  The more glory, the more that Jesus Christ will be lifted up, and draw all men unto Him.

Pattern


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.
When Moses was about to build the tabernacle for God, God cautioned him to accurately construct it in accordance to a specific pattern that He would show him.  The Lord has a particular and unique pattern of ministerial construction for every local assembly, and every corporate and individual ministry.  In our Greek scriptures the word “admonished” is defined as “divine instruction according to revelation.” This is an exhortation for us to cautiously build our ministries step by step in line with the Holy Spirit’s wishes.
Every earthly ministry is as “an example and shadow of heavenly things.”   “An example”, is a copy or a model of the original.  Every ministry, which God calls us into, is the copy of an original which God has already created and dwells with Him in the heavenlies.  The brilliancy and the glory of these heavenly ministries create for us a shadow, or lets say an outline, for the ones who have been called to faithfully reproduce these ministries here on earth. The vast responsibility of all believers is to reproduce its heavenly original with the greatest of earthly accuracy.  The blessings of God will fall upon each ministry in proportion to how accurately it has been reproduced in “accordance with the pattern shown in the mount.”
One of the church’s great problems is that it has failed to grasp that every ministry has a “pattern shown in the mount.”  Because of this failure, we actively subscribe to, and create many   church activities.  Sadly enough, not many of them have much to do with any “patterns” that God has initially for them.  We sow much and reap little.  We will do much more by seeking and waiting upon the Lord for revelation, than in busily getting wrapped up in a host of church activities.

The “Ma Ending” Words in Biblical Greek And I Don’t Mean Momma


I am adding to what I wrote yesterday. Today, through a Bible teacher God opened up my eyes about the rhema word, which is the voice of the Holy Spirit. It comes from the word “rheo “which is to gush, flow or pour out. Now look at yesterday’s study about the nouns which end in “ma”. What would the word rhema mean, then?

Here is an excerpt from yesterday’s teaching,” In the Greek, when a noun ends in “ma” in the singular, or “maton” in the plural, it signifies the effect, the result or the fruit.

Indeed, whatever the Spirit pours out from us by His Word must always result in or produce what He says.

My wife added a little goodie. I don’t know if this right or not.

River in Spanish, is rio. Could the Spanish rio and the Greek rheo mean the same thing?

Both mean to gush, flow, or pour out.

Are rheoma or rioma the precursor to rhema?

The vital thing about rhema is that what the Spirit of God pours out through us must always come to pass. Sometimes there are conditions of obedience on our part and some of His promises are conditional on that obedience.

Yesterday’s teaching outlines another “ma” word describing the healing power of God.

1Co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing <2386> by the same Spirit;
1Co 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings <2386>, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
1Co 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing <2386>? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
I’m still floored by these scriptures many years later.
The word for healing here is “iama,” and it only appears 3 times in the Bible. In the Greek, when a noun ends in “ma” in the singular, or “maton” in the plural, it signifies the effect, the result or the fruit.
Iama comes from the word iaomai, which signifies healing as a cure.
This is stronger than the other healing word, therapeuo. The latter can refer more to a therapeutic healing which can be an elongated process.
Iaomai, is a cure.
Iama, is the effect or the result of the cure, or that which has brought the cure.
Thus, iama, in reality is the word, medicine.
The gifts of healings ( iamaton ) are the gifts of spiritually given medicines to affect the cures
It’s all happens by our faith when we know that God has given us the faith to release the proper medicines or iamaton.

Iama and rhema are two “ ma words ‘ which always mean, fruit, result or effect. Our faith level must function at the level of expecting results.

One more note!

Pneuma or Spirit in the Greek, is another “ma” word.

It comes from the word, “Pneo” which is to blow, or to breath and is associated with the wind.

Therefore, what the Holy Spirit ( pneuma to hagion ) speaks or does by the premise of its “ma” ending” will always come to pass.

God brings the result or the finished product by the wind of His Spirit through the rivery flow of His word.

To Create Like God Creates


Ge 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided <0914> the light from the darkness.

Ge 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide <0914> the waters from the waters.

Ge 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided <0914> the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Ge 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide <0914> the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Ge 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide <0914> the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

In the creation account of Genesis One, we see God divide, which is the word badal, Strong’s # 914.

Look at the definitions at the end of this entry which come from the Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains.

This is what it says about badal.

In God’s mind, the issue of badal is to cause an absolute disassociation to occur from one thing with another, one state from another, and  one culture from  another so that creation can take place.

Where darkness mingles with the light, creation can never fully take place. Where an association between health and sickness take place creation to health cannot fully take place.

Part of the renewal of our mind is for God to make in its thoughts processes  a complete separation from whom you were pre Christ, to what you are today, which is a totally new creation, outfitted to be a vessel which can receive the fullness of God’s glory.

Until every last thought in you of who you were is totally disassociated from the old,  and you have emerged into the new, it is my theory, that you cannot be totally healed. The old cannot mingle with the new. Sickness and glory cannot mingle.

But when you have fully emerged into the new creation that you are, you are now living in a heavenly place and have the full glory and blessings of God accessible to you

“Badal: Separate oneself, leave, i.e., make linear motion away from a space. dismiss, i.e., cause another to leave an area, defect, abandon an association, i.e., leave a space, with a focus that the new place occupied brings with it the loyalty of the one who defected cause one to be disassociated (be selected, chosen, formally, separate, i.e., be chosen or set apart, abandon an association of a foreign culture, but with no focus that the association was proper in the first place. move an object or state from one to another, with a result that distinction can occur, and so place into parts .” Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains

Here is the next thing about creating like God creates.

Gen 1: 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 A And God saw the light, that it was good:

And God saw, is simply not seeing, but seeing to the point that perception, recognition, and evaluation of the seen object are enough to make wise judgments and decisions about it.

That it was good, is that what God created is suitable and functioning properly towards the goal to what He created it for.

This is what God always sees about His Word.

The fall of man has made things unsuitable and poorly functioning.
Yet, in the heavenly realm God has His suitably created objects in a perfectly functioning state hidden and this protected from the natural eyes and grasp of sinful man.

The fall of man has so deceived all of us that are eyes are only opened to what is marred, unsuitable  broken, and ending in death.  Our lives are trapped into seeing, recognizing, loving, following and making judgments about these things. Humanity can be identified like this.

Gen 1: 3 And our circumstances, politicians and media said, Let there be darkness: and there was darkness.

4 A And people saw the darkness, that it was bad.

And yet all of us all are locked into seeing and perceiving the darkness and making our evaluations and perceptions according to what the darkness dictates us. I am so guilty, locking my sight and my life into what the media and politicians tell me and what my shortcoming and bad habits tell me.

I can say that I have seen the light. Though true, my eyes and my life are primarily guided by what I recognize around me. And what is around me is primarily darkness.

So little of what I see, evaluate, and receive comes from the perfected objects which God has in the heavenly realm.

Yet God is wonderful. All that He has created is perfect and beautiful.

There is a different set of eyes, a different set of perception, and an ability to receive from the new and perfected, to those who want it and will pay the price of complete transformation in Christ.

Who will go then through the exhaustive process of transformation and metamorphosis in Christ where entering into, seeing, perceiving and living out of the new is the normal reality.
I am ready to be done with the old and the marred and the broken and see and receive the new, the perfect and the eternal.

The Consummate Energizer Bunny


God’s Resident Power

Eph  1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power ( DUNAMIS) to us-ward (FUNNELED INTO) who believe ( CONTINUALLY BELIEVING) , according to the working( ENERGY PUT OUT) of his mighty ( INNER SPIRITUAL STRENGTH) power,(EXTERNAL DOMINION)

What is the throwing beyond (homerun) greatness of His dunamis power funneled into us the ones believing according to the energy that is put out as God’s inner spiritual strength is translated into His external dominion.

Dunamis power is the inherent power within every created being, living, and non-living.  God has His own inherent dunamis power. Disease has its own type of dunamis power. Dunamis power is what distinguishes one object from the other, and gives to its life and power.

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

Which He energized (PAST TENSE denoting a completed event) in Christ when He raised Him out of a corpse…..

“Working” in verse nineteen, and “wrought” in verse twenty are the same root word; ENERGY;

“Working, “ is the noun, energy.  “Wrought” is the verb to energize.

The definition of God’s DUNAMIS POWER is the energy that was “put out” (in the historical event 2000 years ago), as Christ was raised up from a corpse and made to sit far above in rank, power, and physical distance over all principalities, powers, and might, dominions, and all names which are named both in heaven and upon the earth.

This measure of dunamis power was once and for all energized and charged INTO CHRIST. Because Christ lives in us, so does this DUNAMIS POWER.  Christ is as the “energizer bunny” fully and forever more energized with this specific charge of energy. Christ charged in this manner dwells in the Christian.

The  living reality of this dunamis power, as it is funneled or manifested into us, comes in proportion to our faith. On other words, to the degree that we believe the Word of God is to the degree that this quality and measure charged energy is funneled into us.

Let us look at the properties of the dunamis power that we have resident within us and available when we walk in childlike obedience and faith

The Properties of God’s Resident Power

 Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Far above in rank, power, and physical distance

Every type of principality – Or the beginning of every created thing

A principality is an authoritative demonic being.

However, in the NT, the word principality is also used for a physical beginning or commencement, the creation of something, and the root source of something.

The dunamis power of God in Christ, and charged in us is far above in rank and power, above every root problem such as generational sins, curses, judgments, and the root causes and beginnings in diseases. It is greater than the commencement of any problem. Christ was there with you, before the commencement of anything. Because of this, problems and illnesses can be reversed in your life.

Authority: Is power of choice; liberty to do as one pleases; jurisdiction such as the one which state police has over every road within a state, and the power of rule and government

Authority is the power of choice; or the liberty to do as one pleases, such as the jurisdiction enjoyed by a state policeman.

Cancer, for example has its own authority, in that it can spread at will throughout the human body. However, the authority found in Christ’s dunamis power has an authority far above in rank and power over that of cancer. By our words, as they are tempered with faith, the power of choice, or the liberty of action to command the cancer where we please, is available to us.

Dunamis power: The inherent power in every created thing that defines it and gives to it its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

As we taught earlier, dunamis power is the inherent power exclusive, to every created thing.  Water, has an inherent power of its own, which gives to it its life, and describes it as water, exclusive of any another object.

Cancer has another kind of dunamis power.  God has His own dunamis power.  The dunamis or inherent power of Christ resident in us is far in rank and power above the inherent power of any other created object.  Hallelujah!  When we minister, we know that Christ’s inherent power will subordinate, subjugate and destroy the inherent power sustaining the evil that we are ministering against.

The inherent or dunamis power of something gives to it life, glory, and honor.  Cancer, though evil in nature, has its own evil glory and honor.  The word, “to rebuke” is defined as “UPON THE HONOR.”  When we rebuke cancer in JESUS NAME, we are heaping Christ’s power to bear upon the honor of the root source of the cancer and the liberty that it exercises and the very inherent power that makes it up and gives to its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

“Dominion” or lordship- Someone or something which can bring into bondage.

“And every name that is named.” And every name that identifies something for what it is exclusive of anything else.

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

All these Christ subordinated and subjected under His feet.  When God gave Christ to be head over these things to the church; this same power is now available to us.

1 Cor 15:24  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down ( TO CAUSE SOMETHING TO BECOME NON OPERATIONAL AND NON WORKING SO THAT IT MUST BE JUNKED!!) all rule and all authority and power.

Jesus will give the kingdom to God and the Father only when He shall have rendered totally ineffective (as an old car with an old engine, that finally breaks down and ceases to work any more, and must be junked) every type of principality, commencement and roots sources of all evils, all authorities or jurisdictions which are not from God, and every type of inherent power that gives life, function, glory, and honor to every type of evil.

2 Corinthians 3:11  For if that which is done away (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

Hebrews 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
