The Christian Is In The Book


Let us now look at the six scriptures below.  These verses define six specific events that every ‘believer shared in common “TOGETHER” with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Every Christian believer partook in these six occurrences simultaneously with the Lord Jesus. These historical incidents have exerted an identical influence, and produced matching outcomes for us as it did for the Lord Jesus. We are absolutely one with the Lord in the course and development that these six events took Him through.

  Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

 When Christ was CRUCIFIED, we were CRUCIFIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.

  Rom 6:8  Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

When Christ DIED on the cross, we DIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.

 Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

When Christ was BURIED in the tomb, we were BURIED “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.

Ephesians 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;-)

 When Christ was BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE, we were BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.

Ephesians 2:6  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

When Christ ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN, we ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN “TOGETHER” WITH HIM.”

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.

In Christ

We know that the crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and the sitting down of Christ at God’s right hand to reign, ARE ALL HISTORICAL EVENTS.

Roughly two thousand years ago, in the succession of time, theses six incidents left their mark in history. Their historical occurrences will influence time for all eternity.

All “born again believers” from the past, the present-day, and the future, were “TOGETHER WITH CHRIST” and therefore PRESENT AT THESE SIX EVENTS;

EVERY BELIEVER WAS THERE.

E EXACTLY AT THE SAME TIME, AND IN THE VERY SAME LOCATION AS THE LORD JESUS WAS, when these events took place.

THE IMPACT, AND THE FINAL OUTCOME OF THESE SIX EVENTS UPON THE LORD JESUS’ LIFE, WAS IN EVERY WAY OUR IMPACT AND OUTCOME.

How can this seeming impossibility be a reality?  You and I, were not even born two thousand years ago!  Secondly, Jesus died and rose in Israel, and most of us live in different parts of the world, which is not Israel.

The answer lies that every born again believer IS IN CHRIST!

Envision for a moment that Christ Jesus is “a book.” You, and I, and every believer that has and will pass through the pages of global history, is a piece of paper.

We open the book, slip the piece of paper deep within its pages, and close the book.  The piece of paper is now IN THE BOOK!   Hence every born again believer is IN CHRIST! Every person, at the moment of his or her conversion, automatically becomes IN CHRIST.

Whatever happened to the book or wherever the book went, will also be the paper’s destiny because it is forevermore in the book.  So it is with us, and the Lord Jesus.

John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 1 Cor 15:22  For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. Rom 5:12  Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned—

 Rom 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Every person in human civilization is IN ADAM.   Even though billions of us were not yet born when Adam roamed the face of the earth, spiritually speaking, he and Eve gave birth to all of us, through a long line of their descendants.  Let us look at the result of our being IN ADAM.

Romans five and twelve tells us that sin came into the world through this one man, Adam. Sin has spread and will continue to spread to all men and women in civilization causing the eventual death of all humanity.  In other words, the impact and the outcome that sin had upon Adam have now become our impact and outcome. Our being IN ADAM has caused us partake “TOGETHER WITH” him of his sinful nature.

However, at the very moment that any man or a woman becomes “born again,” they have now become IN CHRIST, and forevermore have partaken TOGETHER WITH Christ in His life, death, and resurrection and ruler ship.

These six historical events that we partook “TOGETHER WITH” the Lord Jesus Christ are all in the “past tense.”

The Indicative And The Subjunctive Moods

      Every grammatical tense in the Greek language is further explained by its grammatical “moods.” The grammatical mood gives life to the past tense in this case.

There are three moods in the Greek grammar; we will however only deal with the two that concern us today; the indicative and the subjunctive.

The indicative mood is a “statement of fact.”  When used with the past tense it tells us the following:  An event without fail has occurred, or will occur, and

will punctuate the progression of history, makes no mistake about it!  This is called the past indicative. There is no possibility of its not coming to pass.

The subjunctive is the mood of “probability and possibility,” and its occurrence is conditional upon a person’s free will to make it happen.

The past subjunctive can be defined as an event that will punctuate the succession of history if an individual is faithful to do it as an act of their free will.

  Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him(Past Indicative), that the body of sin might be destroyed(Past Subjunctive), that henceforth we should not serve sin.

  Rom 6:8  Now if we be dead with(Past Indicative) Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

  Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with(Past Indicative) him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk(Past Subjunctive) in newness of life

  Ephesians 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together(Past Indicative)  with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;-)

  Ephesians 2:6  And hath raised us up together (Past Indicative), and made us sit together (Past Indicative)in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

 7  That in the ages to come he might shew(Past Subjunctive) the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

 Romans 3:22  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

As we study the six events, I want you to take special notice of the glorious beauty of the Lord’s accomplished works as seen in the scriptures above.  His crucifixion, death, burial, coming back to life, ascension, and sitting down at God’s right hand to reign, are all in the past indicative!  This tells us that without fail, He faithfully executed theses six events to utter completion!  Hallelujah!

You will notice however that as we progress through this section of our study, that because Christ has once and for all unmistakably accomplished all in the past indicative, our walk with the Lord is tied up in the past subjunctive.

The big problem throughout history is that the church, through its ignorance of its position in Christ, and by a disobedient free will, has left the accomplished tasks of Christ in the heavenlies, unaccomplished on earth.

I don’t think that we yet understand the eternal ramifications of our not habitually completing the accomplished tasks of Christ on earth through a life of disobedience.  It is most sobering for us to know that in our hands lies the responsibility to become free, Spirit filled Christians, which can bring, or fail to bring, the spiritual kingdom of God into the earthly realm, through the obedient or disobedient exercise of our free wills.

A free will, which is uncompromisingly obedient and continuously yielded to the Spirit of God, will bring forth the reality of God’s accomplished acts into the earth, and will cause all circumstances to line up in accordance to it. Let us look at one example

 Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified(Past Indicative) with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed,(Aorist Subjunctive) that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Our old man was crucified “TOGETHER WITH” Christ.  Please notice the past indicative.  In that the Lord died two thousand years ago, we died two thousand years ago together in Him. The apostle Paul stresses that it was “our old man” which died. Our old man was made up of the body, or the essence of the sin that dwelled within us. The “old man” is all that embodied and defined sin in us.  In the reality of our spiritual position in Christ however, we are sinless. There are several reasons for this.

 Rom 6:7  For he that is dead is freed from sin.

 The King James mistranslates verse seven of Romans chapter six. This verse should read as “For he that has died is justified from sin.” Justification is defined as innocence. A corpse has no sin. Therefore, he cannot sin, nor can he be tempted by sin.  Because of his sinlessness, and his inability to sin, he is innocent from, or of sin. A corpse is therefore justified from sin. When we died and were buried together with Christ, we became a corpse, totally set free from sin.

However the manifestation of this reality in our lives is tied up with our free will, our faith in believing this positional reality and our obedience to the Lord as seen with the past subjunctive in Romans 6:4 below,

Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with(Past Indicative) him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk(Past Subjunctive) in newness of life.

Greek: And you shall know through progressive learning what is genuine and correct about God, and in proportion to your correct understanding of the things of God will be the same proportion that these truths will set you free.

The devil will constantly hit us in any area of our lives that these positional events are yet not a reality to us as a rhema word. We can have 99% truth as rhema word and 1% uncertainty or unbelief.  The devil will hit this 1% percent until it becomes revealed as a rhema word.  It is essential to know that in these six events we were IN CHRIST and that they are all PAST INDICATIVE OCCURRENCES.

The I Am Anointing


Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you (I with you am (present tense) alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The fullness of the essence of God in Christ as “I AM” is always found in the present and immediate tense.  God supersedes the dimension of time.

As with faith, in ministry, God’s power will not be sent to us in the future.  His healing will not take place in the future.  His fire will not be poured out upon us in the future. At the moment that He reveals that these things are for us in a ministry situation they are forevermore and immediately there. The “I” of Jesus is presently always with us in the am of time.

Mark 14:62  And Jesus said, I am (I am (present tense): and ye shall see the Son of man sitting(continually and constantly ruling and reigning….) On (Christ’s energy/ fuel source is power; the world in which Christ operatesis God’s power; andGod’s power does the work through Christ)  the right hand of power, and coming(continually and constantly) in the clouds of heaven.

·        As we live and minister in the timeless dimension of the immediacy of Christ’s continual “I AM ness”, His presence is always coming and is constantly present, in the sphere of God’s power.

·        His “I” always come sin the AM of time rooted in God’s power, continual ruling. and reigning.

John 8:42  Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came (Defined as :”Arrival” Christ is in a present and continuing and continual state of arrival ) from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

·        “Came” – This uncommon word describes to come in its dimension of arriving or arrival. Christ has arrived from God into our world, or more correctly because it is in the present tense, Christ is in a continuing state of arrival, confirming the timeless immediacy of the continual now of His presence. It is imperative that we ask God to deliver us into His world of the dimensionless ness of time. As long as see God as doing things for us in the future we will never work in miracles.

John 8:58  (AV) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

In the am of time Jesus always is in the mode of I

John 10:30  I and my Father are one. (Present tense).

Greek: “I and the Father one are” A perfect and continuous exchange of location in the father and the instrumentality of the father’s works back through Jesus.

·        The “I” and the “Father” are one in the same

John 10:38  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

·        Greek: That in THE ME the Father just as I am Him

·        The I being in Jesus allows complete accessibility for all that Jesus has. Jesus now in this I allows for full effectiveness of His power and so forth.

John 14:7  (AV) If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

·        From now on you know Him progressively and have seen Him with perfect discernment

9  (AV) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

·        The one perfectly discerning me, perfectly has discerned the Father

John 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in(Locative- in the world of) me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth (present participle- the continuing abiding in the world of the Spirit; necessary to produce miracles)  in me, he doeth(Present tense- the father performs the miracles in proportion to our abiding in the world of the Spirit) the works.

We have the timeless immediacy of faith at our disposal, as well as the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence.  However, the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence is also with the Father at the same moment that it with us. This guarantees the absolute effectiveness of our ministry, in that it is the Father who originates, energizes, produces and executes the works through Jesus. Christ’s presence with us in its timeless immediacy generates the works of the Father in their absolute perfection and effectiveness through us. This is because His presence is also in the timeless and continual fellowship with the Father.

The “I” in the Father allowing for access of all that our position in Christ has attained to.

The Father in ME is the I allowing for total effectiveness.

The Father which is now the ME does the works in the ME

·        Greek: The Father in or inside of “ME”, is.

John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Greek: I in my Father, and you in me and I in you.

·        Jesus now teaches us that the believer lives with the Father and the Son in the same perfect exchange of location and instrumentality as the Father and the Son themselves enjoy. This is because Jesus lives in the world of the Father so that the Father simultaneously executes His works back through Jesus.

·        Now we also see that the believer has been placed in the world of Jesus so that Jesus can instrumentally work back His works through the believer. In reality God works through Jesus and back into us because we are in the world of Jesus and Jesus is in the world of the Father. The believer is God’s channel for God to take the invisible works of His kingdom and manifest them into them through Jesus and then visibly through them into the world order. The exact and same ability to do miracles just as Jesus did dwells in us.

John 16:28  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: (I have come into the world system Perfect Tense)  again, I leave (I am constantly and continually releasing the world system)  the world, and go (I am constantly and continually journeying to  constantly and continually fellowship with the father) to the Father.

·        The perfect tense describes an event that has been accomplished and fully carried out in the past, but that its occurrence has an influence and an impact for us now and eternally forevermore. Jesus coming onto our world system is described in the perfect tense. His coming and presence for us is therefore in the timeless immediacy of the continual now. At the very same moment that Jesus is timelessly and immediately here.

He is timelessly and immediately releasing Himself from the world system to timelessly and immediately fellowship with the Father.

John 17:11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, which they may be one, as we are.

Greek: In order that they may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way as us.

·        As the Son lives continuously from moment to moment in the world of the Father, the Father superimposes back upon those very same moments His works back through the Son. We must remember the timeless immediacy of the continual now in the workings of God.

In Jesus priestly prayer in John 17, He asks of the Father that the believers could work in exactly this very same fashion. The present subjunctive tense is one that emphasizes the will of the person.  In other words the believer is not guaranteed that automatically he or she will operate in the timeless immediacy of continually dwelling in the world of God so that God can continually work His works back through them.

Though positionally this is the true for every believer, the manifested reality of God from moment to moment flowing in His works back through the believer can only come as the believer out of his or her will dwells in the world of God from moment to moment.

·        To abide in Jesus is the same as living from moment to moment in the world of Jesus.

John 17:21  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
Greek: that the may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way that you Father in me, and I in you.

·        The prayer of Jesus is that the believer will from moment to moment live in the world of the Spirit so that the same perfect exchange of location in God and God instrumentality working His works back through them exactly as Jesus has with the Father, can take place in the believer. The believer has the same ability to work the works of Jesus to the degree that he or she lives as closely and dependent as Jesus lives in the world of the Father.

22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

Greek: That the may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way that we one are (Present)

John 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

·        Greek: I in them, and you in me, that they may become matured and completed into the same finished product manifesting our exact oneness; so that the world system might from moment to moment learn and know that you sent me into it with a mission, and that mission being that you loved them in exactly the same way that you loved me.

·        To the degree that every believer operates from moment to moment in the world of God of God so that God can simultaneously and from moment to moment work back through the believer will be the same degree that the church will become matured and completed in the oneness that the Father and the Son have.  This oneness as we have learned is the perfect exchange of Jesus being located in God and God instrumentality working His works back through Him.  As the church operates in this oneness with God, He then has absolute liberty to work His miracles in His church, revealing Jesus and His mission to love the world in exactly the same way that the Father loves Him, and thus drawing the world unto Himself through the church.

Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

·        Greek: Yet no longer I, but lives in the world that defines “ME”, Christ.

The Flagstaff / Navajo Revival 2012


Since returning from Africa, our ministry, Safari Through the Word Ministries, has been involved locally in Miami, Florida.

We became Assistant Pastors at our church, Doral Vineyard.

In these last three years we have assisted with the establishment of this growing work, under the leadership of Ralph and Cathy Gomez.

We knew that as this work progressed, the Lord would also resume the “teaching and signs & wonders” revival ministry that Mary and I have been called to.

We share a burden to see revival come to the USA. Without revival, the prospects for America to continue as a godly nation incessantly dim.

I believe that in 2012, our ministry will be embarking on trips across the nation, in the work of revival, as we continue pastoring at Doral Vineyard.

Our first trip is scheduled to Flagstaff, Arizona, projected from February 15th through the 20th.

Flagstaff is part of the Navajo Nation. I sensed ten years ago that revival could commenced with the Native Nations based on God’s principle that the “last shall be first.”

Amongst the 550 Native Nations, the Navajos are one of the most receptive to the gospel.

We are scheduled to have four days of meetings at the Little America Hotel in the heart of Flagstaff. The meetings will be advertised through Arizona and New Mexico, by the Navajo Nation’s biggest newspaper, The Navajo Times.

We have placed a sizable deposit on our conference and hotel rooms, at The Little America Hotel.

We have also placed our advertisement with the Navajo Times and the Arizona Daily Sun.

Mary and I are in need of approximately $1200.00 for our airplane tickets.

The reason why the prices are so high is that only US Airways flies into Flagstaff from Florida as well as Flagstaff is a small city.

Would you then prayerfully consider partnering with us financially in what is a commencement of revival work to our great nation?

As most of you know, our ministry, Safari Through the Word Ministries, is 501 C3 Florida, nonprofit corporation. We issue you receipts for your tax deductible donations at the end of the calendar year.

There are three ways which you can give.

You can write out a personal check or money order to “Safari Through the Word Ministries,” and mail it to:

The 2009 Navajo Nation Revival In Pictures

The Church is the Accused of the Lord


Eph 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us (ACCUSATIVE NOUN CASE) with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

In the Greek, the accusative case is just what it says. The accusing finger points towards the object that will receive all judgment, sentence, or wrath. It’s a receptacle into where all is focused or pointed to. The accused object is the receptacle or the goal of the judgment.

If we turn this into to something good, the object, placed in the accusative case, is the thing that all benefits is poured or funneled into.

The church is the entity into which all of God’s love, blessings, benefits, all that He is, and all the He wants to do is focused into.

I call the church the receptacle of God funnel into which He pours all.

It’s up to us to increase our ability to receive.

We are the objects of His love, we are the charming ones, we have been translated into kingdom of The Son of His Love, and we are His beloved.

Most healing will come as a revelation of how much He truly loves every last part of you. Where you are sick, receive His love into that very place. You are the receptacle of His love. You are the one whose God’s positively accusing finger points to!

The Nyamira Kenya Bible Conference: The Teacher’s Notes: Part Six


Thinking Through, Reflections, Meditating and Understanding

1 Peter 1:13  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

2 Peter 3:1  This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure (JUDGED BY THE SUN’S RAYS) minds by way of remembrance:

A metamorphosis of the mind which is totally delivered into a purity that allows for the sun’s rays to shine unhindered through ponderings, reflections and understanding

Focus of life, to be Minded, Moral Interest, What Absorbs an Individual

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Phillip 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Understanding the Laws affecting the Mind

Romans 7:22  For I delight in the law of God after (ACCORDING) the inward man:

What is a law?

25  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve (SLAVE)  the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Our minds have only one purpose; that is to be a slave of the law of God found in verse twenty-two. With our mind we intuitively and progressively know His will; this is relayed to our will, which relays to our emotions, which pulls our body to obey the law of God, which is limited to the workings of The Spirit of God in our inner man.

How Do We Enter into the World or Realm of the Spirit?

Understanding Intercession in the World of the Holy Spirit.

Eph 6:18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Greek: Using all general prayers and specific petitions  in the Spirit to carry out the state of being awake and attentively guarding all saints.  This guarding in the Spirit for all saints is executed through the means of a constant steadfast devotion and individual petitions for them.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth( INTUITIVELY)  what is the mind ( FOCUS and MINDSET) of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Helpeth our infirmities- The Greek tells us that the Holy Spirit comes face to face with us to take a hold together with us of our infirmities and frailties.

The Spirit itself maketh intercession for us – Greek: “To hit the target above and beyond what is normal.”  I.E. “to do the right thing and do it with skill.”

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

The intercessory ministry of the Holy Spirit, in the world of the Holy Spirit, as He comes to take a hold of our weaknesses, is to give us the breakthroughs, answers, and deliverances that we need with bull’s eye accuracy.  This is the sword of the Spirit at work, which is none else than the rhema word of God. The rhema word of God is the Lord’s surgical weapon (or sword) as it is wielded during intercession to discover, isolate, and spiritually operate upon the specifics of an ungodly situation that has been brought before you by the Lord in prayer.

Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Spiritual is defined as having a spiritual origin, essence, substance, and utilizing laws for its operation that is spiritual. Hence it can only be dealt with inside of the world of the Spirit.

James 5:16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Greek: Sufficient inward residing strength has the petitions of the righteous to energize, and make fully effective, and operational, the works of God towards displaying His kingdom. (as the Holy Spirit intercedes through the believer in the world of the Spirit according to His focus and mindset.

The Conditions Inside the World of the Spirit.

John 1:33  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth (present participle; continually baptizing)  with (in the world and with the instrumentality)  the Holy Ghost.

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 continually baptizes INTO the Holy Ghost.  Why is the baptism in the Holy Spirit so important?  Let us look at the following verse.

Location in the World of the Spirit, and Instrumentality or Influence of the World of the Spirit.

Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Eph 4:6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all,(instrumentality) and in you all.( domain and location)

Biblical baptism always 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.

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.)

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.

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 BAPTIZED into THE LOCATION or SPHERE of a vinegar solution.  After a while, the vinegar WORKED INSTRUMENTALLY BACK through the vegetable and “pickled” it.

At a meeting several weeks ago, I saw several visions of the earth, as a globe. The Lord told me, that this was the world of the Holy Spirit, and that we need to live in it.  During the worship time I dedicated myself to going deeper into the world of the Spirit.   I suddenly saw within this world the availability of everything, as all solutions to all human needs were place and positioned in different places along the sides of this world.

By the availability of everything, I mean that all things are possible, because all things that pertain to humanity were positioned in God’s reconciled, whole, and restored state.  I saw that every disease could be healed, and every problem had an answer, because there was no disease, but only the completed healing of it, in the world of the Spirit.

Faith out of the Book of Hebrews

Hebrews 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

As the mixing of alloys in equal proportions to produce a metal

Hebrews 6:12  That ye be not slothful( sluggard) , but followers (mimics) of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

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

Greek:  The rhema word of God brings the dunamis power of the coming ages into this present one.

Hebrews 10:38  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Now my righteous person shall live by faith as the root source of his very life.  If he draws back in fear my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Heb 11:1   Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Now faith is the title deed of things hoped for, and the full assurance of things that it is impossible for us to see in the present.

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

The ancient men of God through faith so lived that they obtained a good witness

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

Greek: The worlds were framed by the rhema word of God, so that the things that we presently see with our eyes were made out of things that cannot be seen by the eye.  In other words, God always creates what is physically evident to us, out of things which are physically invisible, through the rhema word.  This is the title deed of the rhema word.

The word “framed” is the same word used for the mending of the fishing nets by the apostle Peter.  It is also defined as the full equipping towards the successful carrying out of a mission.  The “framing” of the United States armed forces in the Persian Gulf Crisis tells us that they were furnished with the quality and quantity of armaments, food, gear, and clothing that were needed to furnish them a total victory.

Hebrews 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Without faith there is a vacuum of dunamis power to please God.

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.

Being divinely instructed and admonished concerning the things that he could not see with human the human eyes

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

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 present tense.

He obeyed-   Greek: “a military submission to hearing”

He went out; As we go out with the word of God.

Not 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.

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 rhema word of God.  The natural world was not a reality to him.

Hebrews 11:29  By faith they passed through(A thorough stepping through) the Red sea as by dry land: ( just like if going through dry land) which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. (Were swallowed up; the outcome of having no faith)

Hebrews 11:30  By faith (The domain and instrumentality of faith ) the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about ( encircled upon) seven days.

Hebrews 11:31  By faith the harlot Rahab perished not (In absolutely no way was destroyed together; the outcome of faith)  with them that believed not (non-compliant or in persuadable to the voice of God; non-Christians and Christians alike), when she had received the spies with peace.

Hebrews 11:33  Who through faith subdued ( overcame after contending in a military battle or contest)  kingdoms, wrought (worked out to the point of complete execution)  righteousness, obtained promises, stopped (blocked, stopped and closed up)  the mouths of lions,

Quenched the violence of fire (The inherent dunamis power of fire), escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong(Went diametrically from the point of infirmity and weakness to the point of being strengthened with God’s dunamis power) , waxed valiant in fight,(received sufficient inner strength to contend in war)  turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

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.

The light that God shone within our hearts is bring forth the progressive knowledge of His glory ( that we must acquire and walk in by faith as we obey the light of Hid voice)

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.

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

“In the Spirit we see and prophesy what is puzzling, ambiguous or inexplicable.”  We step out in faith as accurately as possible and speak these very words.  The revelation or understanding many times comes as we prophesy.

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.

Gal 5:6  For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

For in Jesus Christ only obedience to God by faith produces the strength of God that can display His power.  This type faith however is only activated in a way that makes it operational when it is done in love.  Faith through love has the energizing power that produces God’s inner strength for miracles.

Heb 4:3  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

All of the works of God have already come into being.

1 Cor 13:2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

Perfect intuitive knowledge to prophecy out of God’s mouth; progressive knowledge to prophesy by the word of knowledge, and faith in every situation in which you prophesy by both of these two modes, to see the fulfillment of prophecy as miracles.

Please look with me at the following verses that encourage us to open our mouth in faith, as God will fill it.

Prophetic Ministry

Ezekiel 3:1  Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

He said God spoke to me rhematically

Eat Consume and devour

Roll:  “Writing.”  Here it is the writing furnished by God’s Spirit.

Findest: What I show you from moment to moment in the Spirit devour it, and then minister it through my words with the same intention and intensity that I show it to you.

So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

God, Himself, revealed and gave the desire to consume His word so that then the prophet could minister it as led by the Lord in obedience.

And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

God commands us to be filled in abundance with the flow of His rhema word, ”as a writing” which is furnished by the flow of God’s river.

Jer 15:16  Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

God’s word came up in Jeremiah’s spirit and when he knew what they were, he consumed them in order to accomplish God’s ministry in obedience,

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

 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.  “Walk in your calling” is a very important commandment. Part of our maturing, as Christians is the change that the Lord makes in our lives to get us out of the key to ministry is to “walk only in the two or three things that God has called us to do.”  Being busy for the Lord in a host of Christian activities will produce spiritual burnout.  Likewise, the onset of spiritual burnout is a sure sign that we are not walking in our callings.

Acts 21:9  And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.(were continuously prophesying)( Greek verb; present participle)

One who is called into the prophetic ministry should never be content to give one or two prophecies, but should endeavor to have the prophetic gift continuously flow out of him of her for the benefit of others.

Cor 14:6  Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

I come to fellowship with you in utterance by the instrumentality of a revelation.

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.

Notice the body ministry of the early church versus our present “models” which have a few people ministering.

1 Cor 14 :1  Follow ( persecute) after charity, and desire( have a godly jealousy for)  spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

1 Corinthians 14:39  Wherefore, brethren, covet( be jealous) to prophesy, and forbid not (do not hinder or withhold)  to speak with tongues.

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)

If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

Two or three prophets can prophecy in succession and the rest of the church must discern the spirit of the prophets. Many churches to day have totally closed down the gift of prophecy, but the Word of God teaches us otherwise.

And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

Greek: And the spirits of the prophets are in continuous military subjection to the prophets.

Not A Hyper Child But A Hyper Conqueror


Ro 8:37  No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

The Greek says it like this. “  We are hyper conquering through the One, or by means of the One, who has unconditionally loved us.

Any word which has “hyper” preceding it is defined as excessive, over the top, fast and furious,  or “on steroids”.  Hyper drive, a hyper child, a hyper link, to be hyper extended and hyper glycemic, are just a few.

Paul tells us that we are hyper conquerors, or better yet, hyper conquering by means of, or the agency of the Person of Christ.

As with anything in the Christian life, it is not me who so much does it, but the Christ who lives in me, doing it.

Jesus Christ in the Christian is a hyper conqueror and the One who is hyper conquering.  He always hyper conquers all that is not of Him.

As with all things in the Christian life, it’s not a matter of trying so hard. It’s a matter of revealing Christ who is already doing it.

For the believer, much of what he will do comes out of the revelation of Christ who has already done, or is doing the actions.

The more revelation of this Person, the more that you will enter into the existence of hyper conquering.

The key to the revelation of Christ comes through the cross of Christ as you die to self for Christ to be revealed.

The key to the work of the cross is unflagging obedience to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Do you want to enter into this hyper conquering dimension?

More revelation, more hyper conquering. More obedience, more revelation.

Think about that today.


Joh 16:33  I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have oppression; but cheer up! I have overcome the world.”

Ro 12:21  Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

1Jo 2:13  I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, little children, because you know the Father.

1Jo 2:14  I have written to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God remains in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

1Jo 4:4   You are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world.

1Jo 5:4  For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith.

1Jo 5:5  Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Re 2:7  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of my God.

Re 2:11  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes won’t be harmed by the second death.

Re 2:17  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows but he who receives it.

Re 2:26  He who overcomes, and he who keeps my works to the end, to him I will give authority over the nations.

Re 3:5  He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Re 3:12  He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will go out from there no more. I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God, and my own new name.

Re 3:21  He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne.

Re 5:5  One of the elders said to me, “Don’t weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome; he who opens the book and its seven seals.”

Re 6:2  And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.

Re 12:11  They overcame him because of the Lamb’s blood, and because of the

Re 21:7  He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son.
