Christ in You
The largest casino complex in the Southern hemisphere has just opened in Melbourne. 81% of Crown Casino's projected income will come from gambling. Gambling is big business in every state and territory, and we're told that the national spread of casinos has increased Australia's attractiveness to overseas visitors.
What type of people are they attracting? Certainly not Christians. And not respectable family-people. Solid citizens, no matter where they're from, have neither the wherewithal nor the inclination to travel to the ends of the earth to gamble-away hard-earned income.
Most Aussies gamble in one of many legal ways. Surveys indicate people are motivated by a variety of reasons:
For 73% its the thrill or dream of winning; 46% gamble for social reasons; 30% to donate to charity; 20% just love the buzz, while 18% gamble in the belief they might "get lucky".
A recent article in "The Alternative", a Christian newspaper, asks "Where are the ethics of governments, who profit from the gambling losses of their constituents and fail to adequately respond to the social problem from which they've derived financial benefit?"
"Government budgets are being balanced by gambling income, while families are being torn apart, and only a token amount is being spent on their assistance".
In Victoria alone, almost $3 billion was lost on gambling last year. The largest share of which went to government coffers. Less than 3% is reinvested into the community, to assist charities who are picking up the pieces of families and individuals ruined by gambling.
Intelligence reports finger the narcotics industry as the raison d'etre for gambling casinos. Narcotics is the world's largest business, turning over vastly more dollars, and producing greater misery than any other. And according to documentation, control has been in the hands of the same banking and trading interests for centuries.
An intelligence report from the late '80's claimed Australia was run by drugs. Like international reports, it named names.
Ezekiel spoke of Christians, saying that the regenerated man would have His Spirit within their heart, guiding them to understand His statutes, and to keep His judgments; rather external Law, engraved on stone, without (Ezekiel 36:26).
Once again I greet you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Philippians 2:1-8, "If there be any comfort in our mutual dwelling in Christ, if any mutual comfort through love, any fellowship of the Spirit, and depth of tender affection, (that's real oneness in the Spirit). Fulfill my joy that you be like minded, having the same love, agreeing wholeheartedly with each other through the common faith, working together in harmony of mind and judgment.
Let nothing be done selfishly, or to make an impression on others. In humility, esteem others better than yourself. Be concerned not only for your own affairs, for the edification and building-up of the Body, take an interest in what others are doing.
May the attitude of Jesus be your example of humility. Although He was the fullness of the attributes of God manifest in flesh, He didn't cling to His rights as God, like a thief grasping stolen goods. But because He knew Who He was, He surrendered HIs power and authority, dignity and Office for us. He knew He was the Word manifest in flesh, and by surrendering His human will, that Word would manifest His resurrection, and redemption for all in Adam's race, who deny their will, to do the will of the Father. Amen! I like that!
So He made himself of no reputation, taking the form of a slave in mortal flesh: dying as a criminal (to do the will of the Father and fulfill the part of our Kinsman Redeemer).
We must die to the desires of our flesh and mortal spirit so He can live. The only way we can receive His eternal Life is to die to our mortal senses. Jesus died to reveal God to us. Let us die to self and creed to reveal to others, the living Word in us.
According to II Corinthians 3:6-4:3, we don't convert people to Christianity by government. You say, "We make converts to Christ by His government, they're not supposed to drink; they're not supposed to lie."
The heathens in Africa have tribal laws that'll outshine anything you can produce in denominations. If a young girl's not married by a certain age, she has to leave the tribe. She goes into the city; she's a roustabout. And before she's married, she's tested for her virginity. If she's found guilty of adultery, she has to tell who it is, and they're both killed together.
What if you did that to so-called Christians? Ninety-nine percent of them would die before morning. Both men and women.
What if you say, "Well, I'm pure!"
"Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery with her already in his heart." What about that?
What about you, sister, who presented yourself for man to lust? You're as guilty as if you did it. Dress modestly, not in clothes that pertain to a man.
Your pastor's afraid to say that. Denominational headquarters will kick him out if he preaches holiness. They don't take God's Word.
God is making Himself known through His Word Church. We're not to make converts to Christianity by government, but by the revelation of Christ in you. As God was in Christ, Christ is in you. What God did in Christ, Christ does in you. The signs God in Christ, Christ does in you. I like that.
Jesus said at that day (when you're born-again) you'll know that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me, I in you, and you in Me - when you see the revelation. At that day, you shall know that I and the Father are One. And when the revelation becomes plain to you, it's I in you and you in Me.
Jesus was the vindicated Word of God, not some theologian. That's what they're looking for today: someone who can outshine Billy Graham, or prove the Baptists they know where they're standing. But the true Church is looking for the humility and signs of the Living God - Christ.
Jesus was no great theologian but a common peasant, a carpenter's son (so-called). But He said, "Show Me what the Bible says Messiah will do that I haven't manifest."
The Church can do the same thing today. What Christ did, the Church does now. "In that day you'll know that I am in the Father, and the Father's in Me, I in you and you in Me." There you go. Marching to Zion. To the Kingdom. "At that day, you'll know that I'm in you."
Don't miss this. "And as the Father has sent Me, so send I you," The Father that sent Him went in Him to vindicate Himself. For He was the Word. And the same Jesus that sends you, goes with you and in you to vindicate the same God. "As the Father has sent Me (and I live by the Father), so I will send you, and you live by Me." What is He? He's the Word. You live by the Word.
"A little while and the world will see Me no more, yet you shall see Me, for I (personal pronoun: I the Person, Jesus) will be with you, even in you to the end of the world. And the works that I do shall you do also." Now, go back and see what He did, then compare yourself.
"And as it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the Coming of the Son of man". A modern Billy Graham and Oral Roberts went down into Sodom, and preached to the Sodomites blinding their eyes with the Gospel. But one Messenger stayed with Abraham and the Elected group. What kind of a Sign did He have? And what did Abraham call Him? Elohim! God manifest in flesh. Showing that Jesus Himself will be manifested in His Bride in the last days!
They'll be one, like the first Adam and Eve, before sin separated them in death. Christ the second Adam, has redeemed His Bride from death, and is on His way back to the original Eden, restoring His Bride back to fellowship with God, as Husband and Wife in the Garden of Eden.
Christ and His Bride, one with each other and one with God. "And while they're yet thinking, I'll know what they're thinking about; before they speak, I'll answer." Because they have My mind in them. They're the manifested Word.
At that day, the Kingdom will be given over to the Father, that He might be All in All, with Christ, as Son of David sitting on the Throne, King over the whole human race. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together. The lion shall eat straw like a bullock. They shall feed together and lay down. They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy Mountain." Right back to Eden again.
When we're born of Him, we're filled with Him. His Life is in us. So all our actions should declare Him. We have His Name. We should bear His Name, and manifest His Life.
As His Bride we're now pregnant with His Spirit. Oh my! The Church with His Name, bearing His Life, bringing forth signs of His Life, showing we're under pre-eminence, the evidence of His resurrection showing that He is not dead, but alive forevermore! Pregnated by His Spirit, bearing children. This is Eternal Life! Vindicating to the world we're alive in Him.
How do you know it? Because you're a church member? Because Christ is living through you. So pregnant by His Spirit, you're confined to the Gospel, confined to His Word. A prisoner to anything else. And the only children you can bring forth are by His Word.
God is now making His mystery known to His Elect, those who were redeemed by Christ, the second Adam. Those who are going Home, to be restored back to the original Eden; free from death, sickness, sorrow, shame; going back with Eternal Life. God has made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of Old Testament legalism, but of the Spirit: for the letter killeth, (to transgress one command was to be guilty of all), but the Spirit giveth Life.
But all of us whose faces were not viled from the revealed Word of God, behold when we look into the mirror of His Word, the glory of God in us, changing us into that imqge from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord. Praise God!
At the start of II Corinthians chapter three, Paul explained how God was imparting the Holy Spirit from his heart, by the spoken Word, writing the one and only faith in the hearts of his elect, whose lives would manifest the same Life He was living in Paul.
We can only receive the Holy Spirit through our eyes and our ears. I repeat, the Spirit of God can only enter through the eyes or the ears. Blind and deaf mutes can not be born-again. The Life of God must pass through the Body of Christ to quicken man's soul. That's why Jesus says, "My Word is Spirit, It is Life". God imparts His Life by faith, which is a clear understanding of the revealed word and "faith or revelation comes by hearing the Word of God". Unless that faith is communicated, and received or understood, the Holy Spirit can not enter to make one a Christian.
Didn't Jesus and Isaiah say, "Hearing you'll hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive". In other words, those who are carnal-minded, are like the deaf and blind. They cannot be born-again, and are also enmity with God.
God is not omnipresent and can no more be in two places at once than you or I. God is a Being, one Person. God is not a man that He should lie. He's one Spirit, not two spirits and one Man. God is the Holy Spirit. And the only way the Holy Spirit can be in me and in you is by the common faith or understanding of His Word.
People speak of Jewish faith, Muslim faith, Methodist, Baptist and Catholic faith. nonsense, there's no such thing. God's not double-minded. There's only one faith. It's common to all men of faith. We're in agreement. We have been from the beginning.
Faith is the mind of God in you. His mind is His Word, and a Word is a thought expressed. God's thoughts are eternal; they are real. They'll come to pass in their designated, decreed season and time.
God is not now learning, or even taking counsel with Himself. All the thoughts he ever will have, He had from the foundation of the world. Before He manifest Himself as Creator. Before time began. God can't add to his knowledge, and will never have a new thought.
Therefore His Word is immutable. It can't fail, nor can It change. That's why we can trust in It, and, once He has imparted to us His understanding, we can rest upon That.
God's Word tells us who we are. Where we're from, and where we're going. Yes Sir, It tells us the end from the beginning. And It can never lie. You can rest your life on that. Now all human beings are not from God. We are not all from Adam. Jesus Christ did not die for everyone. God's Word tells us that. And those who consider themselves the master race, and are trying to rule this coming NWO certainly know that. What they don't know is God. And they don't know, that by their own choosing, they are lost.
But I digress. If any man would be wise, let him humble himself to God's Word. Therein is righteousness, ...and Life. It's His Word, or perish.
When we look into the mirror we shouldn't see our flesh, but the manifested word, reflecting the character of Jesus. Henceforth we know no man after the flesh. Our judgment is by the manifested Word or Life of Christ in others. ...or It's absence.
Now II Corinthians 4:1, "Therefore seeing we have this ministry of sharing and revealing the unveiled Word, for all to witness in our lives, as we've received mercy, we don't faint when others reject It; and we don't try to brainwash or force them. Jesus plainly said, "My sheep receive My Word. Those who are not My sheep can not receive the faith, and will always be deceived". (We know who we are and where we stand in Christ. We are sinless, and march boldly before God's Throne where we stand without spot, blemish, or condemnation of any kind).
Because we've renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, we walk in the Light of the present Truth (from which darkness flees), not in craftiness, nor handling the Word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commend ourselves in the sight and Presence of God to every man's conscience. (This is the Token, the Life of Christ on display. God's Word living through the veil of our flesh).
But if our Gospel is hid and men can't recognize His Word manifest in us, and see only the senses of mortal spirit and flesh, "it's hid to them that are lost". (They expect the self-righteousness of works of the letter. Like those Greeks who asked to see Jesus, these are blind to the Token or Life of Christ on display in us).
God is transforming, changing or "morph-ing" Himself into a new Form, that of His Bride. He has a threefold purpose. To manifest the fullness of His character and nature in one Man, Christ. To redeem whomsoever will, by gaining the pre-eminence in an election from Adam's race. So He may restore them to Eden whence man fell.
Those who can't see it are unbelievers whereas we are gods. Jesus said, "It's written in your Law, 'I said, You are gods?' If Moses called them gods, to whom the Word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken", then those to whom God reveals His Word in this day are also Gods (John 10:35).
The Bible is the story of God, changing His Form from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts, through the spoken Word to the manifestation of those thoughts in the flesh of His glorified Family. Jesus Christ is the firstborn in this creation of God - less than 2,000 years ago. Like Moses, Christians are the living Word of God manifest - but VEILED to UNbelievers (II Corinthians 3:15-16).
You are the Word for this Age, veiled to sin-loving church members who can't see It, because of the stumbling stone of your flesh (II Corinthians 5:16). They cannot accept the fact of redemption, only pay lip service to its theory. They declare themselves sinners; they are, and will remain so, because they're without the faith to become Christians.
If the ministry of death, or the Law written in stones, began with such glory the Israelites couldn't bear to see the fading Light on Moses' face: shouldn't the life-giving ministry of the Holy Spirit that brings men under preeminence to God's Word written upon their hearts be more glorious? For if the plan that led to condemnation was glorious, more excellent is the glory of a ministry producing righteous living.
Indeed, the glory of the Law in the veiled face of Moses, is of no note whatever, because of the overwhelming glory of the Gospel we now see, in the unveiled face of Christ in His saints.
(You'll remember, that when Moses returned from the mountain after receiving the second Tables of the Law, the skin of his face SHONE from the Shekinah so he covered this reflected glory with a veil).
If that which was passing away had glory, how much greater is the glory of that which is permanent! Oh my! Christ in you, the hope of your glorification.
Seeing that we have such hope, we speak plainly. (Unveiled speech makes one unpopular, particularly among they who see themselves as Christians, and in this Message). Because we have this hope and the earnest of our inheritance, we don't act like Moses who veiled his face, so Israel couldn't plainly see the fading Glory, (typing the Law which is now abolished): For Israel's understanding also was blinded (by the denominational traditions of their reprobate ministers): Even today, when the Old Testament is read, the same vail covers Jewish minds and hearts. This blindness can only be removed by faith in Christ. Then all Israel shall be saved. All 144,000 of them!
Israel has been blinded for 2,000 years, like the churches of this day who love Jesus but hate Christ, because their understanding is veiled by denominational teachings against the revealed word: "and as that which is perfect, the fullness of the Word, is come; part- Word and Christ's mediation is done away" (I Corinthians 13:10).
Now the Lord is that Spirit we minister: and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Life, and freedom to captives of the Law, seeking justification by their carnal works; release for those in denominational prisons, bound by traditions.
God bless. When you CATCH the revelation, PASS It on. radio075.htm
