How Do I Get The Whole Package Deal?


Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

Eph 1:18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

Eph 1:19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us, the ones believing according to the working of His mighty strength

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

Notice how Paul begins in verse 17!

He asks the Father to give him a spirit of revelation in the knowledge of His Son.

What is the result of this spirit of revelation?

That the eyes of my understanding being enlightened I will see what God has placed INSIDE OF Christ.

So what does Jesus have inside of Him?

Here are a few things that Paul lists.

  • You will know what the hope of God’s calling for you is.
  • You will know what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance for you.
  • You will know what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward you.

God has not given you a bunch of things!

1Co 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption

Col 3:11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things in all.

He has given you His Son who has been made into all things and is all things!

The more is the revelation of Jesus the more is the revelation of things which Jesus has been made for you.

What makes Jesus different to all other religions is that it’s not about getting lots of things from God.

Once that you receive Jesus you get it all.

He is God’s whole package deal in one man.

 Jesus is revealed by the work of His cross.

When the cross is applied to our life it kills a part of our old self and automatically reveals Jesus.

Every act of our obedience to God applies the cross.

Its automatic.

Less of us and more of Jesus.

This is the good news that God has given the world!

Who does not like good news and what better news can there be than this?

What happens when the cross is not talked about or taught?

Well, we no longer have the instrument that will reveal Christ and all things which He has been made into for you.

Isn’t this troubling that we don’t teach the cross anymore?

We’ve tricked ourselves into not having Jesus and all the things we need, revealed.

We’ve stopped our boat too short to simply talk about Jesus accepting us but not revealed in us.

The bottom line is that when you receive Jesus into your heart you receive the whole package deal at one time.

Just ask Him to come inside your life!

This is my Face Book status for today.

“In reality God is not so much into blessing us. He blesses what is done in His Son. God knows that without Jesus we are sinners. There is no freedom or wholeness in us. All these things are In Jesus. The honor is not upon us, it’s upon Jesus. Our freedom and healing are not separate blessings that God gives to us. The healing is in Jesus. The deliverance is in Jesus. When I ask God to heal or deliver me, He will reveal more of Jesus to me.”

How does Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Delivers us from Religious Legalism?


Like 8:11   Now it came to pass afterward, that He was traveling through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God, and the twelve were with Him,

2  and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,

3  and Joanna the wife of Chuza, a supervisor of Herod, and Susanna, and many others who were ministering to them from their belongings

I was intrigued by these scriptures after my wife pointed them out.

What can we glean about Jesus from them?

  • The twelve disciples were with him.
  • There were also a number of women whom Jesus had delivered and healed.
  • I checked out the original Greek, and the “many others” in verse three,  is in the feminine tense.

So the picture of those with Jesus was generally  twelve male disciples and a number of women.

  1. The first point is the importance of investing in other’s lives.

Those whom are most apt to follow you are those whom you sacrificially invest into their well being.

Give, and it shall be given back to you. Jesus is not simply talking about money.

Make it a point of investing freely into other’s lives. Don’t be selfish and just think about yourself. You will be blessed by God.

2. The second point is that most of Jesus’ financial supporters were women.

  • In our own ministry, the majority of supporters have been women.

As a matter of fact, in our global travels, the majority of supporters and attendees are women, regardless of country.

  • I thought that God  had called the men to take the rein of leadership?

Where are they?

  • The lack of male leadership in the church is a global crisis which paralyses it.

We can’t blame the attack of the devil on these poor men.  I’ve  heard this before. Nonsense!

The devil can only attack when a door is opened to him. The bottom line with many  Christian men is one of blatant disobedience to God.

Men of God, you need to repent, and repent now!

Most people whom we counsel are godly women, who have husbands dragging their feet for Jesus. These women suffer immeasurably, hoping for their men to  one day join them in the ministry.

How dare we say that women don’t  belong in the pulpit, when they assume the load of the churches’ ministry?  This is the hypocritical and must be stopped!

3.The third point is that of Joanna, the wife of Chuza.

Joanna, is a most interesting figure. Her presence, theologically challenges us.

  • Chuza, was one of the premier officials in Herod’s administration.  He was his trustee, administrator, or manager. Chuza could have administered Herod’s royal properties or even the head of his estate.
  • Thirty years earlier, another Herod had attempted to kill Jesus. Was that the father of this Herod, or an uncle?  I don’t know.

It’s interesting how God works. Whereas one Herod tried to exterminate Jesus, now a top official in another Herod’s administration is one of His biggest financial supporters. God is funny. It’s astounding how He turns the tables upon His enemies.

4.Point four. I assume that Joanna was wealthy?

  • So the wealthy were financially supporting Jesus? Wow, what a concept!

How many times do we pastors get dragged through the ground for having wealthy people give into our ministry. Some want us to be paupers in poverty, barely making it, and suffering for Jesus. We get accused of milking the flock, or of being lazy, or of doing nothing, while taking people’s money. Such a double standard! LOL!

Not only did Jesus have a wealthy person financially supporting him, but many other women which ministered to his needs from their possessions! Did I hear the word, many?

  • We pastors are indicted by others of not working or not having a real job.

Somehow the notion of traveling globally, counseling and praying for people, teaching the Bible or writing books, is not a job.

Full time ministry, they say, is not a real job!

  • But look at Jesus! He was in full time ministry. He did not have a “ nine to five job.”. He had a number of women  monetarily supporting him, because most of those whom he ministered to gave him nothing. And so it is with us today.
  • So when you are tempted to religiously  harp upon your pastor, bite your tongue and meditate on the story of Joanna,  the wife of Chuza!

Many blessings!

Invite Jose and Mary to your meeting!

Most of these women are pastors. On a trip that we took to Kenya in 2010. Where are the men?

Why Should You Leave Club Golgotha?


Mt 27:33  And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

Mr 15:22  And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

Joh 19:17  And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

As I prayed this morning, God gave me a vision.  In it, Jesus stood crucified and dying upon that famous mount called Golgotha.

Gologotha comes from an Aramaic derivative “gulgoleth” translated as skull or head.

In Christian circles, this famous hill is also categorized as Calvary for its Latin derivative “calvaria”, or skull.

If one looks cautiously at the picture on my post, he or she will appreciate the two cavernous holes resembling eye sockets on a skull and what appears as another vertical hole below them where a nose could be.  Above the skull, in the fenced in grassy knoll, is where tradition says, that the cross with Jesus crucified stood.

In my vision, as Jesus hung bleeding and dying, God took me down into the left eye socket of the skull. I would estimate that this eye could not be more than 15 feet below the base of the cross.

Deep inside the rocky socket a wooden table was set with twelve church goers eating. I could not tell what was served but everybody was obsessed with devouring the food. No one looked up. No one spoke. Everybody was transfixed with the sole role of consumption.   How sadly ironic that Jesus was bleeding and  dying fifteen feet above and no one recognized it, or cared to do so.

Have our churches become malls for Christian consumption?  Maybe so, but this was also a “Club Golgotha; Members Only Please!”

And have our churches become Club Golgothas where we dine, socialize and just cater to one another, as Jesus dies bleeding for the world,  dripping blood on top of our heads?

In my vision, someone finally got up from the table awe-struck at the Jesus in a piece of bread which he had picked up from the food.  As everybody else continued munching down at Club Golgotha, he went to the edge of the eye socket still transfixed on the bread. I knew that he was ready to leave Club Golgotha.  I realized that person was me. That person is you. That person is meant to be every Christian.

Yes, we are to assemble and not forsake one other. Yes, we need to fellowship, we are His body.  Yes, we are to go to church.

I love the church, and have laid my life down for it.

I love the church, and so enjoy ministering within it.

But Lord, deliver me from just being a Club Golgotha member. Lord delivers us all as we go to our respective churches!

May they not become Club Golgothas, lose their saltiness, and be worthy only to be trampled underfoot by wicked people

May the unchurched not see the church as an exclusive “members only” fraternity made up of legalistic and judgmental rules which prohibit the many who want to join.

May the church get away from Christian jargon and serve the world by being authentically real and genuinely loving.

Who today is ready to serve the church, but leave Club Golgotha?

I think that it’s not just a good idea but a “God Idea!”
