Part 3 – Dependence vs. Faith Thursday, May 30, 2013

An apostate church congregation lifts up themselves instead of lifting up the Cross of Christ. The motive is the intent of the group to create Man-dependence instead of God-dependence. Religion wants to make people dependent on man, spiritual godliness and godly spirituality wants to make people dependent on God and therefore, points people to the Cross of Christ Jesus.

I shared the following in my May 30th posting but because I will connect it to the points in my posting today, I will reprint a portion of the May 30th posting here.

The following is a real life example.

The following prophesy was given to a church congregation as a means through which Jesus could build faith in the members of the congregation. This Rhema Word falls into the category of exhortation and encouragement forms of prophesy meant for the growth of the Saints. The Pastor of this congregation first said this was not a ‘Word from God’ then later relented on his position when asked in the presence of witnesses how it was in error. He then took the position that the Word could not be presented because people in his congregation needed first to ‘Be renewed in their minds.’ To that end one would wonder is not this type of Word part of that very process; a statement you will understand better once you have read the Rhema Word for yourself. No, this pastor did not want such a powerful Rhema Word of Faith put out to his congregation because it pointed the people to the All-Sufficient Work of the Cross of Christ and would birth great faith in Jesus, and Jesus alone, among his congregants – creating less dependence on him as their shepherd.

Judge [discern] the Word for yourself.

The Rhema Word has been duplicated here exactly as it was given to the Pastor of said congregation.

Thus says the Lord God, “You seek Victory yet, you have Victory. You seek Truth, yet you have Truth. You seek Freedom, yet you have Freedom. You seek and cannot seem to find, can you not see that what you seek is Me. I Jesus am Victory. I Jesus am Truth. I Jesus am Freedom. I have told you in My Word that if you seek Me, the Truth, you will find Me. If you know Me, you know the Truth. I told you in My Word you would know the Truth and the Truth would make you free – free because I am the Truth. I and my work on the cross is all that is needed for victory and freedom; it is all that is needed to live in Truth. Why do you continue to seek Me for something that you have already if you know Me, if I am in you and you are in Me. Stop seeking to get and look at what you have and find overcoming power. I am the Lord your God hear Me.”

An individual who was actually part of the congregation this Word was intended for recently came to understand the Truth, which this pastor had denied them access to months earlier. How much distress might this person, and others, have been spared had the Word of the Lord came forth in season on the day God intended it to come forth. As the Bible says, that person’s spiritual blood is on that man’s hands. Nevertheless, Jesus saw to it that He found a way to communicate this Truth to the individual.

In one of those moments, which many of the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant have experience, this individual’s spirit cried out to the Living God for relief and was met by Jesus with the answer they needed. ‘All you need is Jesus.’ Yes, all they need is Jesus! The Cross of Jesus accomplished for this person, and for every member of the Spiritual Remnant of God, all that they would ever need for any purpose. Their Victory is found in the Cross. Their Truth is found in the Cross. Their Freedom is found in the Cross. Their everything is found in the Cross because all they need ultimately is Jesus. Dependence upon and trust in the Cross of Christ is the greatest spiritual weapon anyone could ever or will ever be able to partake in.

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
