You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? Galatians 5:7

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1

INTRODUCTION: Transition from law to faith alone. It gets a little ugly!

DID YOU KNOW?

Some books of the New Testament are written primarily to the Jews, like the book of Hebrews and some written primarily to us Gentiles like Galatians.

Galatians is primarily written to Jesus following Gentiles that have been hindered by religious Jews still trying to oppress the new believers to continue to follow the law.

As it was in the Days of Noah

Navigating through 2022

This prophetic message in 1986, helped me prepare for ministry today 2022!

I cannot transfer the relationship I have with Jesus to you, but I can encourage you to STOP and take inventory of everything you are doing! If what you are doing, supporting, or promoting is not drawing you closer to the presence of God then it is drawing you away from Him. There is no time to debate, just stop it. If you continue in an activity because you naively gave your word without enough information; quickly ask forgiveness and stop the activity.

From this day May 2022 the most important thing in your life is to immerse yourself in the presence of God through His Word, His Son, His Holy Spirit. Read, pray, sing, assemble with others that are doing the same, and put your attention to the next great event that is scheduled on God’s calendar: The catching away of the Bride of Christ.

Do not be deceived

The Bride of Christ IS NOT THE CHURCH.

Who is the Bride of Christ and what should she be doing right now!

Good News #1 – When you accepted Jesus as your Savior from sin, He has also given you eternal life with Him. You will live with Him and those who have made the same decision forever. The good news is that even though you will take your last breath on this earth to enter heaven, you don’t have to wait until you get to heaven to enjoy eternal life, you have it right now.

Good News #2 – When you declared with your mouth Jesus is not just your Savior but also your Lord and King, you have just entered The Kingdom of God on Earth and Jesus is your King NOW!

Conflict– At the same time you entered the Kingdom of God you exited the Kingdom of Darkness. Satan and his demons hate your decision to be free, and will try everything to get you back.

Good News #3 – Your first weapon, you have already used; the name of Jesus. If you ever feel scared or tempted use your one word prayer: “JESUS” The enemy hates that name and will scatter. The second weapon is what we are highlighting today; it is The Written Word of God, which is Truth. Practice your memory verse for this week, when temptation comes your way (and it will) Just quote the verse from memory OUTLOUD! You will have the victory.

GOD AND MAN: A Broken Relationship – SIN SEPARATES

Thought #1 – Sin separates.Sin means; you missed the mark. God has set a path for your Journey to live with Him forever, and when you make a decision to veer off that path you have missed the blessing He was intending for you to have on that part of your journey. When you sinned, you made a turn and it separates you from God. Like a dart game, you went the wrong direction and missed the mark. When you realize what you have done; stop, ask Jesus to forgive you, change your thinking, turn around and get back on the path. Because you have an enemy who is constantly trying to deceive you, this process of repentance will become a powerful weapon.

Thought #2 – When we sin and make a decision to “go off course” it is usually because we are not accustom to having a King guiding our lives. We have to practice and acknowledge that Jesus sits on the throne of our lives now and that He is King. Good News? He is a good King!

11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

JESUS MADE A WAY – God with us

Thought #1 – Jesus is the door to eternal life. We go through Him to get to Life! The Old Testament of your Bible talks and points to the Messiah, Savor, Jesus coming. The New Testament tells what happen to Jesus when He was here and points forward to Him coming to take us to heaven.

IDEA: The Bible Movie Matthew will give you the picture of the Love of God through Jesus.

Thought #2 – There is a cost to living in His Kingdom. It cost Jesus His life on the cross, it will cost us control. Jesus is a good King that paid for the right to be our king!

11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

GOD’S GUIDANCE – GOD WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU

Thought #1 – We all have been tempted to doubt that God is still with us, even the heroes in the Bible like Joshua need to be encouraged. Joshua 1:5-9 …for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

If you are watching the Bible Movie Matthew you will see that even His disciples who were with Him doubted.

Thought #2 – God will direct you! How you ask?

  • By memorizing and reading His Word, He will point out areas of our lives that we need to repent.
  • God directs through pray by His Holy Spirit, as we set aside a time to talk with Him every day we will learn to know His voice!
  • God directs through other followers of Jesus as they give us loving council.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE – The Family of God

Thought #1 – Not only will the presence of God never leave you but there are others who are learning like you and believe in the same Jesus. I pray that Father God will send those people across your path.

Thought #2 – I am not talking about joining a religious organization or club or a church building/temple. Ekklesia is the Greek word that was translated the word church in most Bibles. The deeper more accurate translation would be the phrase: The called out ones, those who understand the freedom of living in The Kingdom of God on Earth. We are better together, may our Lord bring those people across your path.

WEEK 2 DAY 1 – Discipleship Course – ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Memory Verse:

1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV

13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

HOW TO LISTEN TO JESUS WITHIN – We are in a Battle

Thought #1 – Develop a relationship, not a religion. Read John 1:12

We are in a battle! Satan will throw everything he can at you, to tempt you to go back to your old ways. Old addictions or old religious practices, he does not care. He will use anything that will stop a personal relationship with Jesus.

Thought #2 – God has already communicated with you and YOU HEARD HIM! You received His communication and were born again. Now we need to practice listening to him. Where would that special place be? What would that special time be?

Thought #3 – We don’t have to seek or beg for God to speak to us, He is speaking ALL THE TIME! He is seeking us, He loves you and wants to speak to you.

WEEK 2 DAY 2 – Discipleship Course – ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Memory Verse:

1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV

13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

HOW TO LISTEN TO JESUS WITHIN – WHERE IS CHRIST WHEN HE COMMUNICATES WITH YOU?

Thought #1 – Jesus speaks to you in your inner being.

Colossians 1:27 – To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Ephesians 3:16 …that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man…

Thought #2 – Body, mind and soul; let’s clear it up. When Adam and Eve sinned (remember sin separates) they died, but wait, were they not still walking around? They died spiritually, separated from that intimate relationship with God the life giver. But still physically walking around in their body and thinking with their mind. We therefore all born spiritually dead.

Remember we are talking about prayer and communicating with God.

In the beginning Adam would receive communication direct from God to his spirit, after sin the spirit is silent, dark and dead therefore; mankind would have to get his information from another source, his flesh body and environment, through natural: seeing, touching, feeling, hearing and tasting (our five senses).

Thought #3 – What happened when we were born again? You have been rebirthed to be able to communicate with God. But now there is a war as your flesh man wants to keep calling the shots which is in conflict with the information and truth coming from God through prayer, Holy Spirit and God’s word.

ROMANS 7:23 … 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind

Thought #4 – How to listen to Jesus within?

  • Be open; don’t avoid areas that you know need help.
  • Know when you first say Jesus can we talk, HE IS RIGHT THERE READY!
  • Take time, wait to hear. He is making sure He has your full attention.

HOW TO LISTEN TO JESUS WITHIN – Using scripture in the listening room

Thought #1 – We need to be strengthened by the Word of God to overcome temptation. We don’t need to defend our Bible, we need to use it. Use it like a sword. Remember Jesus fought with the Word when He said: Satan it is written… we need to know what is written.

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness… The same Holy Spirit will help you to understand the Word. Knowing Scripture will allow us to discern if someone is lying to you like a false prophet, false pastor or teacher!

Thought #2 – Say out loud the word STANDARD The Bible is our ETERNAL STANDARD OF TRUTH!
