(INTERPRETED MESSAGE FROM BILL WINSTON A VERY POWERFUL MAN OF GOD).
THERE ARE PRINCIPLES OF THE WORLD AND THERE ARE PRINCIPLES OF THE KINGDOM, DIFFERENTIATE THE TWO SIDES AND KNOW WHICH SIDE YOU ARE ON..
To operate on higher principles above the world there is:
To operate on worldly principles there is:
(ANY BAD TRAIT YOU CAN THINK OF, YES THAT IS OF WORLDLY BEHAVIOR, BECAUSE IN THE KINGDOM SUCH PRINCIPLES OF DARKNESS DO NOT OPERATE IN LIGHT, ONLY POSITIVE).
GALATIANS 5 is a good example in that it talks about the ‘hope of righteousness’.. In Galatians 5:16-21: This I say then, walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another: So that ye cannot do the things that ye could. But if ye be led off the spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, sedition, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revelling’s, and such like: of which I have told you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.’
This shows how important walking in the Kingdom is and why walking with worldly principles will lead you to darkness. In all things done remember there is always going to be a consequence for your actions, you walk in darkness you will not know peace and the foundation you create for your future will crumble. Because where God is absent nothing will work or stay together.
Whereas if you walk with the Kingdom principles everything assigned to you from God will locate you, you will know peace, you will prosper and you will be moving forward to greatness, the foundation will be strong and stable. Stagnation shall not be your portions neither will darkness and failure in Jesus name. Amen.
Speak good things and act in a good way and God shall be with you to face the challenges faced in life. ‘Matthew 4:4 states … It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’
The enemy is always around looking for who to destroy, the enemy seeks to cause destruction.. and in Galatians 6:7-8 it tells us that we should not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soeth, that he shall also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the spirit reap life everlasting..’
You see there is power in the actions we carry out in life, nothing we do will go unseen. God sees everything nothing is hidden away from Him. The fear you have in God should cause you to stand upright and live right by His word and guidance. Some will say well this is hard because I know I am not perfect and will sin again and cause God to be upset with me.. If you know this then turn to God and ask for help, when you bear all to Him fully all those things you thought you could not stop doing within a matter of time you will stop doing those things and it’ll be a thing of the past.
Do not look down on yourself when you do wrong, that feeling may last for a while but the wrong act you did whatever it may have been has already been done and you cannot change that. Time moves forward not backwards so pray over it and from that moment in time seek God more than before to help you.. With everything we need Gods help not one person can say they don’t and can get through life alone. Because that is simply not true, God created us and had a plan for each and every one of us, so why shouldn’t we go to our creator at all times ????
The world cannot save itself and the world cannot save you, it needs the children of God to sow to a higher level that need for spiritual life to deliver it. Back to the point I was making about the cold world we live in, in ‘Ezekiel 36:33 Thus saith the Lord God; in the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the waste shall be built.’
We are in the world BUT we are not of the world, the world is a dark place, with a dead spirit of ungodly things, a dark run system designed to destroy and go against the principles of the Bible. One which comes to mind was the government legalising gay marriages, when in the Bible it clearly states marriage is a unity between man and woman, husband and wife, shared vows made with each other before God to not be broken.
As shown in ‘Genesis 2:22-23 and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, this is now the bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.’
‘Genesis 2:24-25 therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were both not ashamed.’ (Nowhere in the scriptures does it say a man will leave his mother and father and cleave unto his husband, noo… same way it doesn’t say a woman will leave her mother and father and cleave unto her wife O_o)
What God has joined together let no man put asunder!)..
Moving on from that… As mentioned before what you do in life has a way of catching up with you, you may think you know best and do what you want to do and live how you believe is right to live. But those actions will catch up eventually, before you do something think about it, will God be happy?, will it be of good consequence or bad?.. ‘Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death.’
That is why we should live under Gods anointing and guidance He knows best, sometimes we all do fall short of His glory but that’s even more reason to get to know Him more, straighten our ways and our paths and make a better life for us.. ‘Hosea 8:7 for they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind; it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal; if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow up; now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein no pleasure is.’
This simply shows that once you do badly you shall rep what you sow from that, so you will carry the heavy burden of all the wrongs you have committed. However once you’ve done badly and become saved, the things you did before will come back to you but this time it will fall on Jesus, He will carry your burdens for you and be there to lead you to your rightful destiny. When you mess up, repent and God will take of the heavy burdens you carry. Decree it over yourself that you want goodness to reign in your life, all you have to do is say it and believe in it, one comes with the other, and it shall be settled. God is telling us to choose life and with that we must believe that all things work together for our good and yes we can achieve. Why because we have our Father with us day and night, Monday to Sunday, each month, each year to see us through. God is awesome!!!!
The enemy will try to keep us dependant on a system that doesn’t work out, but overlook that and the things of the world and keep God as your one and only main source in life. After all Jesus came not as God, but came as the Son of God, He sent His God head ability aside and operated as man. Look at all the sacrifices made for us and people doubt Gods ability and what He can do.. Know who you call God and the extent of what He can do for us all. Do not take it for granted at all.
LASTLY LETS LOOK AT ADAM IN SOME DETAIL AND RELATE IT TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD..
ADAM (The fall of man).
- THE TEMPTATION
- THE FALL
- THE CURSE
- THE TEMPTATION- Now Adam knew he shouldn’t eat of the trees of the garden as God requested, but the woman told him that he could eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
LESSON LEARNT HERE.. IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING WITH TEMPTATION FOR ANYTHING PRAY TO GOD TO HELP YOU OVERCOME IT, DO NOT TRY TO HANDLE IT YOUR OWN WAY, IT WILL NOT BENEFIT YOU AND MAKE THE MATTER WORSE, WHEN YOU COULD WORK TO OVERCOME IT. DO NOT CONFIDE IN ANYONE SIMPLY TAKE IT UP IN PRAYER GODS SOLUTIONS ARE THE BEST AND SECOND TO NONE.
THE FALL OF MAN- And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. From this wrongful action they both became naked and sewed together fig leaves and made themselves aprons. They then heard the voice of God in the garden and decided to hide themselves from God amongst the trees of the garden. The Lord called unto Adam, and said unto him, where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.. And God in turn responded who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldn’t eat? (THE IMPORTANCE OF FOLLOWING WHAT GOD COMMANDS YOU TO DO, DO NOT GO AGAINST BECAUSE YOU WILL RETURN TO HIM IN THE LONG RUN AND REALISE HIS WAY WAS BEST, KNOW BETTER FROM THE START).
And the man said, the WOMAN whom thou gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat it (Even after God said he should not eat there, TO THE MEN ESPECIALLY DO NOT LOOSE FOCUS AND FALL OFF TRACK BECAUSE OF WOMEN AND TURN AGAINST GOD DUE TO SUCH ACTION, KNOW BETTER AND KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON GOD. NOT ALL WOMEN YOU SEE, AS ATTRACTIVE AS THEY MAY BE ARE RIGHT, THE DEVIL WAS ONCE AN ANGEL AND SO LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING).
And the Lord God said unto the woman, what is this thou hast done? And the woman said, ‘The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
The blame game is being played here, when the going gets tough they will blame you and depart from such involvement, likewise with today’s society everyone is in it for themselves do not be deceived, but stay close to God to avoid such. Because with God all will be made very clear to you.
THE CURSE- And the Lord God said unto the serpent, because thou has done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field, upon thy belly shall thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of his life. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children, and thy shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of the wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying thou shalt not eat of it, cursed is the ground for thy sake, in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them. ‘Genesis 3:1-24’
(LESSON LEARNT HERE, ONCE AGAIN SHOWS YOUR ACTIONS WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED, GOD SEES EVERYTHING WITH EVERY BAD ACT YOU DO)..
The important points along with the ones previously mentioned, show that in the garden Adam lost in his fall three vital things:
He was put out of the garden, and in that same garden it contained everything he would have needed in this life. The garden is now the Kingdom and the Kingdom has come inside of every believer. We have all the provisions needed in the Kingdom and should not take them for granted.
Lastly food for thought… Jesus desires for us to identify with Him, how to operate under the authority of God, to operate in the kingdom of authority. So there is no need to spend soo long on prayer at times, to the extent of drifting off the main reason you went to pray, but see yourself as God will see you and it shall be done. We should be different to how we once were, there should be a clear difference from how you were before… ‘Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
WHAT YOU THINK ALSO HAS A LOT TO DO WITH YOUR BEHAVIOUR…
