The Sea Will Part For You-Trust Him

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we need to cling to the Lord/LORD, much the way a child clings to his or her parents.  The closeness that one thinks about when you think of a clinging child, is arms wrapped around your neck and body snuggled as closely to your own as possible.  Can you imagine clinging like that to the Lord?  It is exactly that, that is meant.  But we are not to cling fearfully or as if we were helpless.

We are to cling in intimacy and trust, or confidence; as two being one. This message goes hand in hand with Saturday’s message about having confidence that the Red Sea-whatever it may be for your or me, will surely part when we reach it.  We’re not to even think about it until we get there.  Once we’re standing on its shores, we are promised passage through the parted sea, and on into our promised land.  That’s the reason we must cling so closely that we move as one being.  This is where we find our strength, our courage, our peace, and our power.

Whether it is a month of total chaos, day after day, or a battle with weight, anxiety, depression, etc., or some health crisis that represents your Red Sea…God leads us by a cloud during the days, and a pillar of fire by night to show us the way we should go.  That tells me that I’m going to survive the heat.  It tells me also, that nothing can obscure the path in front of me, or stop me from getting to my promised land.  The chaos will not prevail, but order will be restored.  I will not lose the battle of the bulge.  I will not be afraid.  I will not be immobilized by fear, anger, or doubt-but I will have strength to rise and praise the Lord upon rising!  I will overcome and win the battles; because the Lord and I are as one.  I move in Him, and He moves in me.  This, by the way works one dependent on the other.  When I move in Him, He is more able to move in me.  As He moves in me, the more able I am to move in Him.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

The Other Side of the Cross

What Takes Place at Calvary

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that it is through Jesus’ death on the cross at Calvary that we are empowered to be restored to our divine nature, and to abundance of life here on Earth, and to eternal life with Him in Heaven.  This message is actually a continuation of yesterday’s message about the blessing of crucifixion.

The Bible tells us that the wages of sin is death.  (Romans 6:21-23   True life, abundant life, eternal life all come through death.  The death of sin, that is.  Sin, fear and other negative emotion, and ego are our three worst enemies, our fiercest battles are fought with them.  Freedom from sin requires death.  Either you crucify the sin, the fear, etc., or it crucifies you.  Death by crucifixion is a slow and painful death.  Let me tell you how I suffer every time I have to run past the cookies or the cheesecake.  Lord, that’s so painful to my sweet tooth!  That’s a heads-up about the sin.  It can, and probably will, rear its ugly head more than once, or time and time again for a while.  But if you, if your spirit is dead to that thing, it’s power within you is dead.  It no longer has the upper hand.

“I am a non-smoker.”  That statement speaks to the urge that’s trying to come on you.  It is truth told to that unclean spirit about who you are.  Can you hear that same taunt?  “If you are the Son of God…”  It also speaks truth to your spirit.  “Remember who and whose you are.  Remember who has the authority here.  This will rise up immediately in your spirit, disarming that urge or craving, by putting you on the defense against it, and in authority over it.

That brings us to this statement.  This is a powerful revelation, folks.  “I am that I am.”  (Exodus 3:14)  We can also find it in 1 Corinthians 15:10 – “I am what I am by the grace of God, and His grace to me was not without effect.”    That statement reveals to us exactly who it is that is in charge over you or over me.  It tells you who’s in control over you, your thoughts, emotions, speech, and actions.  You have authority and power to choose.  Take a spilled drink, for instance.  The choices are:  Anger, fear, shame, or other negative emotion.  Choice number 2 is acceptance and appropriate action.  Acceptance allows us to laugh at our humanity, to have compassion, to show grace toward one another, etc.

The urges are worked the same way.  Acceptance that the urge is there empowers us to act on it appropriately.  We can laugh, we can stand firm against it.  Negative traits can be turned around using this same principle and method.  I am a blessing, I am generous, I am truthful, I am strong, I am loyal, fair, impartial, dependable, etc.  You get to choose who and whose you want to be, what you want to be and what you don’t want to be.

“I am that I am,” empowers us, not only with choice, but also with creativity.  We can follow our heart’s desires, our curiosities, etc.  “I always wanted to learn…”  “I wonder if I’d be any good at…”  I love to…”  We are empowered through that statement to spread our wings and soar to the highest heights.  Can you see another facet of the glory of Calvary, now?  Praise God!  And, thank you, Jesus!

Spiritualism vs Walking in the Spirit

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, warns us not to seek the wrong spirit.  You could end up being a host for that spirit, and much to your demise.

Isaiah 8:19 – “When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?”  The LORD spoke that through Isaiah.

Jesus warned us about impure or unclean spirits in Matthew 12:43 – 45 – “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it..”

Galatians 5:16 tells us to walk by THE Spirit (Holy Spirit) so that we won’t gratify the desires of the flesh.  Do you know the unclean and impure spirits work through our flesh just like the Holy Spirit works through our flesh.  The difference is that the Holy Spirit is for us, and the unclean spirits are against us.  The Holy Spirit brings us to freedom, and abundant life.  The unclean spirits bind us to death through fear, anger, guilt, shame, pain, sorrow, etc.

There’s a great deception about about bondages and addictions.  Most of us mistakenly believe the drugs, alcohol, illicit sex, work, yes, even church, are the crutches we use.  They are not.  The bondages/crutches are  actually the fears, the anger, the guilt, the shame, pain, sorrow, and etc.  These are the excuses we use to put the chains on; the chains being the drugs alcohol, etc.  These can only be broken off by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit leads us to truths, gives us the courage to face it, and the strength to stand against the fear, anger, ets., and to walk in the newness of God’s truth; to walk in freedom from the bondages.

Quoting directly from the message: “Spiritualism is wrong. No man should ever be a medium for any spirit, other than Mine.”
