But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. Paul of Tarsus

The Pure Man

All of mankind walks this earth with two perfect natures one born of a woman is perfectly evil, the other is God’s Nature which is perfectly pure, Light, Truth and Love.

Mans reasoning of God and all of mankind’s beliefs are sourced from the perfectly evil nature. This perfectly evil nature is absolutely incapable of submitting unto God, and not one speck of it will enter God’s Kingdom.

What will transpire is the Kingdom of God within one will become ones sole nature to operate from. This is all made possible by God’s workmanship, and His refining process.

Mans Salvation is the outcome of God’s workmanship and thus man becomes a New Creation, Pure and Holy, for man will be formed in God’s likeness and image.

God is Holy and to enter His Kingdom one must become like God, Holy.

Truth is Always True

Within the True Shepherd there is no lack only complete fullness, the fullness of Light, Life, Truth and Love.

As one by Faith is walked through the valley of the shadow of death one arrives to see the absolute abundance of His provision in Spirit and Truth.

His revelation brings one to see the unseen yet ever present Truth of ones reality within The Kingdom of God.

One by Faith sees the Kingdom of God as never not being true within one. As God opens ones heart to embrace this Truth, one sees ones place in our Fathers house as always being true.

In this revelation one sees that only God’s goodness and faithfulness is ones reality and that one has always and will always dwell within our Fathers house forever and ever.

Amen

James

James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes who are dispersed abroad: Greetings.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

But the brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position; and the rich man in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he will pass away. For the sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away. Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which has promised to those who love Him.

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.

Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.

You know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.

If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this man’s religion is worthless.

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, to keep oneself unstained by the world.

What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?

If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, by itself. But someone may say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.

But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless?

Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected; and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God.

You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. In the same way, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

Let not many become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment. For we all stumble in many. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well. Now if we put the bits into the horses’ mouths so that they will obey us, we direct their entire body as well.

Look at the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the inclination of the pilot desires. So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of life, and is set on fire by hell. For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; a restless evil full of deadly poison. With it we bless Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way. Does a fountain send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh.

Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”?

But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.

Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that. “But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.

Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!

Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you.

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near. Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door. As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment.

Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.

My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

God’s Thirst

God has a thirst and in this will have this thirst quenched in and through His creation and profound creativity.

When God met the woman at the well the thirst was the opening statement, and this dialogue between the woman and God displays the thirst, and how it will be quenched.

The woman represents all of humanity and in this God is displaying how humanity likewise has a thirst, one for Living Water, and eternal Life.

The woman representing humanity will find the True Husband in God and have this thirst quenched by Living Water.

From this true worship will be established and experienced, for in humanities transformation there will be True worship in Spirit and Truth.

In this True worship the thirst of God will be quenched as all of His creation in True unison worship God in Spirit and Truth.

The day the God redeemed His creation He cried out “I thirst!” This thirst is about to be quenched as God brings mankind into His Kingdom.

Walking Home

Our walk home is one where we find God wounding and healing and wounding and healing to bring us to a point of complete healing.

All to bring us into the Joy of His Strength and to establish us in Faith to deliver us from all that had been obscurity, the view through a darkened glass.

It is His Good will to provide for us His Kingdom for in this we all will find our True Home, our Fathers Heart and Mind, and oneness in Spirit and Truth.

His Day is upon us and in this all will come to see our Fathers unending goodness, kindness and eternal Love.

“Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him; Worship the LORD in holy array. Tremble before Him, all the earth; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.”

Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD; For He is coming to judge the earth. O give thanks to the LORD, for good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Then say, “Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us and deliver us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name, And glory in Your praise.”

Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. Then all the people said, “Amen,” and praised the LORD.”

1 Chronicles 16

Living By Faith

In the beginning The Word spoke the creation into existence, this physical creation serves God’s purpose as a platform for man in God recreating Himself.

From the dust of the earth man was formed and came to life by the very breath of God. Mans creation in this earthly realm serves God’s design for mankind’s ultimate destiny and to God’s Glory.

Man is designed to live by Faith, for its only by Faith that man can see the ever present yet unseen God.

It’s only by Faith that man encounters God and in and through Faith man begins to relate to God, for its only by Faith that man can please God.

Just as the Word spoke creation into existence, its mans destiny to be established in The Word, by Faith. For Faith comes from hearing The Word of God. Hearing The Word and moving by Faith in obedience unto The Word is how Faith becomes established within ones being.

It’s by Faith that man enters the realm of God, and is eternally established within The Word of God, by Faith.

The Destiny of Mankind

David spent time out under the stars, tending to his flock and experiencing the Creation, in this setting God was speaking to David in preparation for what was ahead in David’s future.

As David enters this process of relating to God it’s by the Spirit of God that David sees beyond the seen, yet knows that the creation reveals God.

“O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth, Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!

From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him?

Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty!

You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field, The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth!”

In this unique experience David was granted the ability to see beyond the earthly realm and understands that God has formed man for a destiny beyond mans finite existence, a destiny that only God can bring man into, and one that God will indeed bring all of mankind into, all by the workmanship of the very hands of The One True Creator God.

Amen!
