Filling the Earth with His Glory.

Image
“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isa. 53:5-6).
Every sin that man has been or will be guilty of has been whipped clean...forgiven...by the finished work of of Jesus' death and resurrection. Jesus by His death on the Cross bore the sin of "ALL". Until we have a proper appreciation and understanding of God’s accomplishment through the finished work of Jesus, we can never be kingdom believers walking in the reality of His life in us. We must have more than just an superficial understanding of the plan of God for humanity.
Man’s problem was sin. God took care of sin through Jesus. Man's downfall post-cross is his preoccupation with "sin consciousness" rather than "God consciousness"! Sin is not a …

Am I a Religious Narcissists?

Image
Anyone who claims to be a follower of Christ but pursues...their own or denominated agendas...fame...money...position...manipulation and control of people...being the spiritual channel from God to the people for spiritual revelation...building themselves up at the expense of demeaning others...denominational division...man-made-doctrine at the expense of loving people...the bible as the loving Word instead of Christ, the Living Word...religion more than relationship...are they true followers of Christ? Or are they Religious Narcissists...by which I mean they have an excessive interest in ones self, are characterized by extreme selfishness with a superior spiritual view of ones own abilities and a craving for recognition and admiration because of their spiritual position, authority or bible knowledge. The religious narcissist is dangerous to saint and sinner alike!

Some characteristics of a religious narcissist are:
An infatuation with their own abilities and achievements. They love to p…

Is Segregation God's plan for His Community of the Redeemed?

Image
Independence, segregation, separation, self-sufficiency, and division are tools of the devil used by man to maintain the disposition to be exclusive in the acceptance of people according to denominational barriers of doctrinal beliefs.

Do we honestly believe that the above is the plan of God for giving us Jesus in order to bring us into relationship with Him and in the establishment of His Church? Is this the direction the Holy Spirit has taken to bring people into the kingdom of God?

What Jesus did on the cross is a vital part of His testimony to His Church, and to the people of the world. He brought to naught the disintegrating effects of sin in a person's life and the devils interference with God’s creation, the Community of the Redeemed...His Church.

The goal of satanic activity is to separate, segregate, divide and to cause conflict, confusion, discontentment and strife, especially within the Community of the Redeemed.

God created the universe and His creation worked in perfect u…

The Religion of the Pharisees and Christianized Religion...Is there a DIFFERENCE?

Image
Matthew 23 is one of a most  enlightening passages of Scripture in the Bible which many enlightened religionists are blinded to. One writer said of Matthew 23: “Jesus’ words in this passage fly from His lips like claps of thunder and spears of lightning. Out of His mouth on this occasion [come] the most fearful and dreadful statements that Jesus [ever] uttered on earth.” In this text, Jesus addresses the scribes and the Pharisees, and He calls them hypocrites, sons of hell, blind guides, fools, robbers, self-indulgent, whitewashed tombs, snakes, vipers, persecutors, and murderers." These admonitions were not made to the sinners...but...to the religionists of His day!

These scribes and Pharisees were not considered sinners, they were the most highly regarded religious leaders of their day. They were well-respected and loved their status and self-respectiveness. They were devout and very sincere. They believed what they were doing was right, good and godly. And so did the the people…

RELATIONAL DIFFERENCES

Image
The Community of the Religious is Institutional Relational Related. 

The Community of the Redeemed is Family Relational Related. 

Family dynamics are built on an entirely different foundation than religious institutional dynamics. The religious dynamic is more of a working together in cooperation as a Means-to-an-End...escape hell and go to heaven. The  religious dynamic frowns on individuality and diversity where acceptance is based on performance and compliance and relationship is through lines of hierarchical authority. The family dynamic is simply learning to relate to each other in love, acceptance and forgiveness. In a family diversity is not only allowed, it is cherished. People don't relate to each other through lines of authority, but through functional gifting.

Religion is presses people to conform and perform, success and failures are judged by a standard and praised or  condemned...The Community of the Redeemed let's people grow together at their own pace, that have t…
