Stop complaining and ......

Righteousness cannot be legislated.  You cannot turn America or any other nation back to God with laws or any kind of governmental authority.  You can put prayer back in the schools, but they will be carnal prayers that will rise no higher than the ceiling.  You can outlaw this and that sin, but it will not change the hearts of men one iota.  What the world needs today is not laws or police action to establish righteousness men must experience regeneration, transformation, a new birth from above.  This is only affected by SPIRITUAL POWER.  The Kingdom of God can only be established in the earth by the spiritual power that changes men and makes them new creatures in Christ Jesus.  “Except a man (any man) be born again, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God,” is what Jesus taught.  Once a man is born again, truly born again by the Spirit of God, you need no laws to enforce righteousness upon him.  Once a nation turns to the Lord it will change the government but changing the government cannot turn men to the Lord!  The so-called “Christian Right” in America today has the cart before the horse.  They have the whole thing backwards. Their mission will fail.  They cannot and will not bring America back to God through the ballot box.   Only the mighty saving, delivering, transforming power of God can accomplish the work.  We need to be busy reaching the lost with the Kingdom of God instead of condemning the lost for doing what lost people do.  I am not surprised by the action of lost people, yet I am stunned by the actions of believers.  If we are as burdened for America as we seem, why don’t we take action and win them to Jesus.  The answer for America is EVANGELISM.  Yet the church does little in that area but much in the area of complaining.  Listen America, we have the answer.   JESUS!!!!   If we are truly burdened for the state of the union, we should obey what Jesus said to do, “GO.”

All Out Evangelism

21. August 2013 06:24 by don | 1 Comments

1 Corinthians 9:19: “For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; 22 to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.”

Tiger Woods, Shaq, Steve Jobs and others gave it all they had to what they did.  What have you given your all to.  Paul gave his all to winning all people to Jesus.  HE WENT ALL OUT!  Have you gone all out to win souls?  Today we give our all to our jobs, family, churches,  wealth and other temporal things.  Let's go all out for eternal things. People are choosing everyday heaven and hell.  We MUST present the Good News of God's Kingdom to everyone.  Why don't we go ALL OUT for the things of God?  I like the words Paul used inspired by the Holy Spirit, 'that I might by ALL MEANS WIN SOME'.  Oh, that we could say, 'that I by all means may win some'.  This is all out evangelism.  Let's choose to go all out.  Amen?

The power and the glory of the kingdom!

You can get rid of all pornography, you can close down all the abortion clinics, you can close up all the brothels, all the adult book stores, all the nude strip-joints, and all the hell-holes of sin, pass a million laws against sin, send out the army in the streets to enforce them, and sin will still erupt in your very midst because it is the heart that is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.  Outward sins are merely an effect of the inward sin of heart and nature they are not a cause.  Man does not sin because he sees sin, he sins because it’s a nature to do it.  The fact is, I couldn’t have been anything at one time except a sinner because as long as I remained in the consciousness of Adam I would forever be in a consciousness of sinning.  But once you begin to come into the consciousness of the Christ the whole concept of sinning becomes foreign to you.  You become centered in a God-Christ consciousness which becomes the spirit motivating your actions, the law of life within.  Christ within becomes the animating principle and power of your being unto righteousness.  And this, precious friend of mine, IS THE POWER AND THE GLORY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Cannot legislate righteousness

5. August 2013 07:06 by don | 0 Comments

Preachers travel up and down the land with their fingers pointed at sinners, picking out a new sin, the sin of the week, to preach against.  Their whole message is that the media is ungodly, the government is corrupt, the New World Order is a conspiracy, the educational system is immoral, the abortionists, homosexuals, and others must be stopped, and they breathe out threatenings, hell-fire and damnation against the world from their perch high upon a crag on mount Sinai.  That’s not God’s way at all!  Our heavenly Father calls us to assume a posture that causes the light of God to shine upon the just and upon the unjust.  The way of the Kingdom is not human government.  The way of the Kingdom is not trying to get everyone to agree on a law that forbids unrighteousness and godlessness.  That is the way of man’s government, they can only deal with evil by restraint.  But that is not God’s Kingdom economy.  To reign in the Kingdom the heart of the Father in heaven must be raised up within us.  Sin cannot be gotten rid of externally.  The whole concept of the Kingdom as taught by the preachers today is absurd.

Jesus will not return UNTIL.....

1. August 2013 05:29 by don | 0 Comments

Now we begin three weeks on the nature of the kingdom of God, or more specifically, the "gospel of the kingdom." What is the kingdom of God? What is the "gospel of the kingdom"?

The reason this is important is plain from Matthew 24:14. Jesus said that "this gospel of the kingdom" will be preached until all the nations of the world have heard it as a testimony. This means that until all the unreached nations (=peoples, not countries) have a bona fide testimony called "the gospel of the kingdom," it is the duty of every generation of Christians to press on with proclaiming it to the world. That means us, because there are still today thousands of unreached nations (peoples). And if that is our task, we must know what the "gospel of the kingdom" is. So it is tremendously important for us to study the message of the Kingdom of God.

As Michelle and I tell the Maasai tribe of East Africa, many who have never heard, the gospel of the Kingdom of God.  Perhaps as I tell the last one that had not heard, Michelle and I will hear the trumpet sound.  The last one to hear may be from our ministry.  "Come lord Jesus, come quickly'.
