Your Place in HIStory is Settled

The victory is already won! We have overcome the accuser by the blood of the LAMB, the WORDS of our TESTIMONY, and by our life sacrificing OBEDIENCE. Its too late for the devil:-) its too late for the Accuser. Its too late for the liar!

You have to realize that the devil is nothing more than a very talented actor in comparison to Christ Jesus. Jesus is Lord of all reality. The devil has already failed. The accuser and all of his messengers are already failures. Their job is to convince you that they have the power prestige and pleasure to get you to follow them.

If you follow the steps of overcoming, as seen in revelations 12:11, you can enforce the victory of Jesus Christ and completely ignore the voice of the accuser.

Your calling and your place in HISTory is settled – you just have to walk out your reality in Christ and ignore the devils fake reality show.

the devil’s main weapon against you is your silence

the devils main weapon against you is your silence. as long as he can keep your mouth shut, any devil demon bully rapist or oppressor can do anything they want to you and make you think it’s your fault. never stop telling your testimony, never stop fighting with the cleansing blood of the lamb, and never stop sacrificing your life to obey God. you have all the power, they don’t. Rev 12:11

And its never too late to detonate your testimony of truth on the devil… God is the referee and there is infinite instant replay.

VICTORY OVERCOMES

VICTORY OVERCOMES

1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Jesus Christ is God and King, and obedience to His commandments brings you Victory over the world, since He is the King of the World. But since He is currently waiting for His enemies to be made His footstool, it takes faith to make this victory happen  

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Let’s separate two elements of this scripture:

  1. Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.
  2. The victory that overcomes the world is our faith.

First you get victory through faith. Then, that victory overcomes the world by faith. Where does that faith come from? Its born from God.

Let’s resynthesize the elements of this scripture:

Whatever faith, belief, vision, confession, saying, profession, ministry, obedient action… that is born from, conceived from, originated from God the Father in Heaven… IS the VICTORY that is designed to overcome, conquer, and gain supremacy over… the world’s system, the world’s ways, the worlds sinful methods and strategies that originated in satan, sin, and the prince of this world.

Say “Lah.”

The faith that GOD gave you will always overcome the sinful ways and methods of the world. It’s a guarantee! But you must actively believe and confess it, and it must be born and originated from God.

Say “Lah” again…

Then say “HallelujaH, God I thank you for an original faith and vision given from you, not from my own mind or satan! I will continue to work the faith in Christ that you have given me, and watch it overcome the sinful ways of the world.”

7th Message: How to Sit With Jesus on His Throne!
A Message from Jesus to Lukewarm Christians that Don’t Change Anything
(Laodicean) Revelation 3:14-22

Jesus describes Himself:
1. THE AMEN- the So Be It.
Jesus is a PROMISE. Definite. Unshakeable. Unchangeable.
 2. Faithful and True Witness:
   Jesus Unceasingly represents and DECLARES Without Hiding  the Truthful Reality of what is happening.
3. Beginning of the Creation of God:
Jesus is the Chief element over, and the reason for the Creation. All things were BY Him, THROUGH Him, and FOR Him.

Why did Jesus describe Himself in this way to this Laodicean group of Christians?
He did it because they weren’t changing anything. Jesus Changes things. He’s the AMEN: a promise, so circumstances adjust to Him. He’s a Faithful and True Witness who won’t keep silent on Truth. He originated the whole creation, He is the definition of change and movement and growth.

I KNOW, and am intimately acquainted with: your WORKS (enough to taste them). You are neither cold nor not. So, because you are lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth.

What do people feel when they drink cold drinks? They feel energy move and it changes their temperature.
What do people feel when they drink something hot? It moves energy and changes their temperature.

Jesus is saying that the WORKS of these Christians weren’t changing anything, they just fit in, they were accepted, the didn’t rock the boat, didn’t challenge anything that was going on, they didn’t cause any energy to be stirred up in their surroundings. They didn’t represent Jesus at all.

22: And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 
Jude

Jesus wants us to change things that surround us- sometimes with compassion, making a difference in people’s lives – sometimes with fear and hatred of sin (warning people about consequences of disobedience to God). What Jesus does NOT want us to do is just fit in with the world, not saying anything or changing anything.

This group of Christians was lukewarm- they fit in perfectly, they didn’t change anything around Him. They didn’t represent Jesus as the AMEN (a certain promise), as a Faithful Witness (not afraid to speak the truth about what is going on), or as the Originator of Creation (the Root and Cause of all things).

Yet, they were “blessed and prosperous.” They obviously had increases in material wealth, and they bragged about it.

But Jesus looked at them with spiritual eyes: He called them poor (spiritually), wretched, miserable, blind, and naked (spiritually).

Jesus sees things VERY differently from the obvious physical appearance. Jesus always sees into the spiritual realm of all His people.

Jesus counsel: He uses things they can understand. He tells them to solve their spiritual problems with spiritual solutions.
1. BUY from me GOLD tried in the FIRE (1 Peter 1:7). FAITH that goes through tribulation is spiritual GOLD. “Don’t make it easy for yourself. Don’t run away from challenges and trials. Believe me for something harder than riches. Believe me in tough circumstances where you don’t fit in with everybody. Believe me for something that’s not easy, like changing your surroundings.
2. BUY from Me WHITE RAIMENT. White raiment is righteousness. Righteousness is given to us by our faith in Christ. But it is also righteous acts (Revelation 19:8). Stop fitting in with the world, do things right. Do righteous acts.
3. ANOINT EYES with EYESALVE, that you may see. Seek God for the anointing of the Holy Ghost to give you spiritual insight. (Ephesians 1:17). The reason you fit in is because you can’t see anything different. The reason you think you’re all good when you are really wretched, blind, miserable and naked, is because you CAN’T SEE spiritual things at all. Anoint your spiritual eyes to see spiritual realities. Everything is NOT all good. Things need to change around here!

As many as I LOVE… I rebuke and chasten, therefore be ZEALOUS and REPENT.

Jesus comforts us, telling us that the reason He rebukes us and chastens us is love for us. He tells us to Be Zealous. If you are used to fitting in, repent, change and be Zealous. Lukewarm Christians that don’t change the spiritual atmosphere or change anything might start making fun of you for being zealous, but JESUS wants you to be zealous! I’ll stick with Jesus.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

The Invitation is open. Jesus is actively looking for people to eat with and be with. Jesus only likes people that change things in the spiritual atmosphere (He spits the lukewarm out of his mouth).

PROMISES to those that OVERCOME!:

“If you overcome lukewarmness, fitting in, and not changing anything, and you instead become ZEALOUS, with FAITH (spiritual money and spiritual riches), RIGHTOUSNESS (spiritual white clothing), and ANOINTED EYESALVE (spiritual eyesight):

Not only will you be a member of my kingdom in heaven, but I will let you sit with me on my throne…. Like I overcame, and am sitting with my Father in His throne.

YOU CAN SIT WITH JESUS ON HIS THRONE IF YOU OVERCOME LUKEWARMNESS! CHILLING WITH JESUS AND HELPING HIM RULE the UNIVERSE.

That will be awesome!

If you have spiritual ears, please pay attention and meditate these things!

6th Message: How to Be THE CLOSEST to God the Father!
A Message from Jesus to Patient Christians
(Philadelphia) Revelation 3:7-13

Jesus describes Himself:
1. He that is Holy – transcendently beautiful, perfect, and separate
2. He that is True – no lie in Him
3. He that has the Key of David – Has authority as King of Jerusalem, spiritually and naturally.
4. The exclusively opens and shuts doors – Is in control of all opportunities. “I’m heaven’s bouncer, booking agent, manager, HR, connecter, rainmaker, etc…”

Why does Jesus describe Himself this way to this Church? Jesus is speaking a message of encouragement and assurance to a patient group of Christians; He is telling them that He is Trustworthy, In TOTAL Control, and Has no bad motives towards them in keeping them waiting.

Jesus Knows and is INTIMATELY acquainted with:
– their works. So He gives them an Open Door. NO Man can shut it, or take this opportunity away from them.
 – they have a little strength
 – they kept His Word
 – they have not denied His name.

He will make fake artificial Christians:
1. Come and worship God before the Patient Christian’s feet.
2. Know how much God loves the Patient Christians in this church.

Because you kept the Word of God’s patience:
– God will keep them from the tribulation.

Instructions: Hold TIGHTLY to what you already have!
1. Word- The Words of Jesus.
2. Name – the Name and authority of Jesus. Commitment to Him.
3. Patience.
Hold on to these things so no one takes your crown (reward).

Promises if you Overcome:
1. I will make you a pillar in God’s temple, you will stay there.
2. I will write God’s name on you.
3. I will write the name of God’s city on You.
4. I (Jesus) will write my Brand New Exclusive name on you.

The patient Christian that overcomes (maintains and hold’s on to the patience of Christ, trust in God’s Word, and trust in God’s name); will be built into God’s temple (be closest to God. They will also be branded with:
God’s name.
God’s city.
Jesus’s brand new name.

Name stands for authority and identity.

So over and above being a member of heaven:
 You will be build into part of the temple- be closer to God.
 You will have God’s name, and the name of God’s city.
 And Jesus’s new name as your “name brand.”

That’s sweet! You get to represent God more than anyone else in heaven!

Obviously patience is very important to the heart of the Son of God.

1. Notice that Jesus said NOTHING BAD about this patient group of Christians.
2. Notice how many good things he gave them:
– An Open door. Exclusive opportunities that nobody can take away.
– Fake Jews bowing down
– Being vindicated by God’s love before fake Jews
– Being protected from the greatest tribulation to come on the whole world
– A CROWN
3. On top of all that, if they overcome (and keep Jesus’ Patience, Word, and Name), they get to be closest to God, be branded with His names, and represent God more than anyone in heaven.

PATIENCE & Faith in God’s Word and Name – VERY IMPORTANT.

If you have a heart that can hear and understand spiritual things, please PAY attention to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches- this is Deep and Important.

5th Message: How to Stay Saved and Keep Your Name in the Book of Life!
A Message from Jesus to the Dead Christians
(Sardis) Revelation 3:1-6

Jesus describes Himself: I Own the Church and I know what’s going on in it.
1. I have the Seven Spirits of God
2. I have the Seven Stars. (The 7 Messengers of the Church).

Jesus Knows:
1. Your works
2. You have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. You have branded yourself to be alive but its just an image. You are hanging around the Churches, going through the motions, but you are spiritually dead. I know, I’m the One really in charge.

Your Instructions:
1. Be watchful. Watch and Pray.
2. Strengthen the things which remain, that are not dead yet. Why? I have not found your works mature before God
3. Remember what you heard before, hold on to them, and repent.

IF You don’t watch, you won’t know when I (Jesus) am coming back.

That’s the 2nd time Jesus told the dead Christians to watch and pray.
 
41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26

Be Aware! Watch and see what is going on, and then pray to God about what you see.
Instead of being spiritually asleep, watch!
Good things about this Church: They have a few names that have not defiled their garments (have not slipped into an unrighteous lifestyle after being saved).
Promise: They will walk with Jesus in white.
-White garments symbolize your righteousness.
-There were only a FEW Christians in Sardis that were still living in their righteousness.
-Those are the ONLY individuals that will walk with Christ in white.

Promise:
He that Overcomes (their spiritual deadness and unrighteous acts)
1. Will be clothed in white raiment: (righteousness).
2. Jesus will NOT blot their name out of the book of life. (Meaning that if they don’t overcome, He WILL blot their name out of the book of life). Jesus already had plans to blot their name out of the book of life, but if they overcome, He won’t.
3. He will confess their name before God the Father and His angels.

If you have a heart to listen and understand, please pay attention, concentrate, and take heed to the deeper meanings that the Spirit seeks to express to many different groups of Christians.

If Jesus says that He can blot your name out of the Book of Life, that means He can do it. Jesus doesn’t make vain threats, or waste His words.

If you are a “dead” Christian; You are in church, and have a name that you are alive, but are really DEAD, then YOU NEED TO OVER COME THIS PROBLEM. If you are with a group of Christians where most of you are spiritually dead and living unrighteous, you need to solve this problem.

Otherwise you may get your name blotted out of the book of life by Jesus.

How to Overcome:
1. You need to watch:
a. Be Spiritually aware instead of asleep.
b. Pray about what you see.
2. You need to strengthen yourself in the spirit.
a. Through Prayer in the Spirit
b. Rich study of God’s Word
c. Fasting.
3. Don’t defile yourself with corruption or unrighteous acts.
a. Live righteously in real life everyday.
b. Develop a hatred for things that are unclean to God.

Some people think: “Once Save always Saved.”

They think because they prayed a prayer a long time ago, or they were baptized as kids, or because they still go to church and have a name that they are alive, that everything is okay and they are righteous in God’s sight.

Well, Jesus said that He owns the Spirits of God and the Messengers of the Churches. He knows who really is living righteous and clean. He saved you for a relationship with Him, not to put your name in a membership.

If you have a “name,” image, or brand that you are alive spiritually, but you really are dead spiritually: you need to repent, watch, pray, strengthen, and stop defiling your righteous spiritual white clothes with filthy actions.

If you overcome this “dead” Christianity, you will be really righteous in Christ’s eyes, and Jesus will keep your name in the book of life. Otherwise, He’ll blot it out.

2nd Message from Jesus – How to Get the Crown of Life Forever!

2nd Message:How to Get the Crown of Life Forever!

A Message from Jesus to the Christians that Are Going Through Suffering

Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-11)

Jesus describes Himself:

1. The first and the last – Jesus lets them know He has original power and final power. The authorities that persecute them do NOT have final say.

2. Which was dead, and is alive – Jesus calms their fear of death by reminding them that “I was dead, and I’m alive.” If they follow him death won’t hurt them either.

 

Why does Jesus describe Himself in this particular way to this group of Christians? We will see later in the message why- they are being persecuted.

 

Jesus knows, sees, and is intimately acquainted with:

1. Their works. They did good works.

2. Tribulation. They are suffering troubling circumstances.

3. Poverty. They are poor in natural things (but Jesus points out that they are rich spiritually). If Jesus says you are rich, YOU ARE RICH!

4. He knows they are bothered by other people say that they are followers of God, but are actually a group of satan-followers that speak evil of God.

 

PROBLEM:

NO PROBLEM. Jesus has NO PROBLEM with the Christians that are suffering. In fact, they are poor, but Jesus calls them rich. He has NOTHING AGAINST the Suffering Christian.

 

Instruction:

  1. Don’t be afraid of those things that you suffer.
  2. The devil will throw some of you into prison, you will be tried 10 and have tribulation days.
  3. Be faithful unto death.

 

PROMISE

  1. If you are faithful unto death, then I will give you the crown of life.
  2. If you overcome (stay faithful through your suffering). You will not be hurt at all by the 2nd death.

 

HEAR! Pay attention to the deeper meanings of what the Spirit of GOD is saying to many groups of Christians.

 

If you suffer and stay faithful until your first death, you will not only be a member of the Kingdom of heaven, but you will ALSO not be hurt AT ALL by the second death (Judgement Day).

 

I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Revelation 20:4-6

 

You will receive a Crown of Life, and reign with Christ 1000 years. You will not be hurt at all by the final judgment. Suffering for God gives you extra mercy on Judgment Day! Not only are you in the Book of Life, but the 2nd death will not affect you, at all. This is awesome! Your life will be judged as perfect. (Otherwise, God’s judgment would affect you.) This is powerful.

 

This message from Jesus is unique because it is available to everybody:

 

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us. 2 Timothy 2:12

 

When we see through Jesus’ eyes, we see:

riches in spite of poverty,

power after suffering,

life after death,

and faith in God in the middle of those that blaspheme.

 

You may not be in a time and place where you get punished by the government for worshipping Jesus in Spirit and Truth (while false blasphemous religion gets excused)…

BUT we all will get a chance go through suffering for the name of Jesus.

 

It could be people looking down on you, or talking about you for living holy. It could be making a lot less money than you could if you sold an evil product, or cheated at work. You know it’s a lot easier to make money if you work with evil products – they have the largest profit margins (drugs, debt, prostitution, drunkenness, porn, sinful entertainment).

 

Even though God gives deliverance and prosperity, all true Christians that follow Jesus will suffer in some way (2 Timothy 3:12). This is a blessing in disguise, to test your spiritual eyesight. If you embrace this suffering, it will be your CROWN of LIFE! Embrace suffering for Jesus. Don’t suffer for doing wrong, then blame the devil. Suffer for doing right.
