SOURCE OF my PRAISE

Monday 01-30-2017 1 Corinthians 4:5-
5. Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.
Terry, are you trying to impress and gain My approval; rather than living in light of My already bestowed approval by living in Harmony with Me? Live in light of Our intimacy with each other for then you will be clothed in Our Father’s praise. Unless you would rather have your praise come from man.

CHOSEN & TOGETHER

Sunday 01-29-2017 1 Corinthians 4:1-4
1. Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
2. In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.
3. But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; in fact, I do not even examine myself.
4. For I am conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this acquitted; but the one who examines me is the Lord.
Terry, I have chosen you to serve with Me. I want everyone to know that We are working together with Our Father to expose others to to His revelations. By trusting in My faithfulness to you, you too will demonstrate a faithfulness embetted in supernatural faith – We are an unbeatable duo.
This is why you don’t need to compare yourself with others or examine your own motives because you are now living by My values – RELAX, WE ARE DOING THIS TOGETHER.

A REALITY REVEALED

Saturday 01-28-2017 1 Corinthians 3:1-23 Weekly Review QT
Terry, when My Body functions as it should it is a wonder to behold. When unity prevails, when I Am heard, when My presence is recognized, when your spiritual eyes see and spiritual ears hear; that is when you are actually getting to know Me and the power of My resurrection.
Are you as excited about Me as I am about you? Be bold. Live intentionally in reliance on Our intimacy of fellowship to expose My presence and power. Let your Faith in My Faithfulness motivate your speech, attitude and actions.
Be excited concerning living daily with Me. Our intimate Fellowship will not only startle the world around you, but will even amaze you.
Awake and embrace Me, ABUNDANT LIFE awaits to be a REALITY REVEALED.

AWAKE, OH SPIRITUAL MAN

Friday 01-27-2017 1 Corinthians 3:1-23 QT
1 Corinthians 3:1-4
1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ.
2 …even now you are not yet able,
3 … For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?
4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not mere men?
Terry, why do you still live according to the flesh? You constantly compare yourself to others, you evaluate your potential on the basis of your flesh’s short commings and you give into self-pity rather than rely on the revelation of Christ’s presence and power in you. It is not who you think you are, but who I have revealed, who you are – act on the basis of FAITH in My Faithfulness toward you. In Me, you should not act like a mere man.

JESUS IN OUR HEARTS TO OUR LIPS

1. And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God.
2. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
Terry, don’t get caught up with trying to sound professional, eloquent, or scholarly when talking about Me. Simply let everyone know what I mean to you; tell them about the importance of My Crucifiction and it would be a great idea to inform them about My Resurrection, Ascention, and Promised return. In fact don’t hesitate to mention Me in all your conversations.

JESUS – THE MYSTERY OF GOD

Monday 01-23-2017 1 Corinthians 2:6-10
[6]Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away;
[7]but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;
[10]For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
Terry, the mystery of God is “Christ in you the hope of glory”. To speak from the platform of My Wisdom is supernatural, by faith My Spirit Reveals, by faith I impress an action, by faith you obedey, and by faith you fully rely on Me for the consequences. My Revelation is in every word on every page of My Written Word. As you read listen, and you will hear what I have to say to you. Don’t be listening for others be listening for you.

JESUS EXCITED ABOUT US

Sunday 01-22-2017 1 Corinthians 2:1-16
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
1. And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God.
2. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
3. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling,
4. and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5. so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
Terry, I Am thrilled when you seek Me out for fellowship. I Am excited when it comes to sharing My Revelation with you as you read My Written Word. When you listen to others, not to hear them, but hear Me, I swell with pride knowing that My Body is building itself up in love.
I love it when your faith clings, with tenacity, to My Faithfullness. By so doing you have presented, Our Father, an open door through which to express His power to the people living around you. HALLELUJAH!!

WITH JESUS HERE AND NOW

Saturday 01-21-2017 : WEEKLY REVIEW QT
Terry, disappointment and a since of failure lies in the fact that you have allowd some other idea of personal identity other than your satisfaction of being complete in Me to capture your heart. Some idea of ministry, skill, position, ideal family, a desired possesion, knowledge – your focus has shifted from your identity being complete in Our Oneness or Connetion – Remember it is, only, in Our intimacy that YOUR SINCE OF fulfillment will ever be achieved. If you can’t find it here and NOW on earth with Me then how will you ever endure eternity being in My presence?

JESUS IN THE WRITTEN WORD

Friday 01-20-2017 :1Corinthians 1:20-31 QT
22. For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;
23. but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,
24. but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
30. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption,
31. so that, just as it is written, “Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

**********
Terry, your Bible is not the answer to wisdom, riteousness sanctification or redemption – I AM! Read My Written Word to get to know Me – the LIVING WORD. My Written Word draws you to Me, My Written Word reveals that I Am the Truth, the Life, and the Way – yes you need to be reading your Bible because by doing so you will discover Me.
Let Me ask: Are you reading your Bible to gain insight, principles, methodes, or formulas to live by? When you read to know Me and fellowship with Me then Our intimacy allows Me to become your life and I will never lead you astray – I Am the One Who gives you abundant Life. Look for the revelation from Father, Me and Spirit as you read My Written Word and I the Living Word will be the central focus of your Life – figure it out, wisdom, signs are not the answer – I Am!   Boast concerning Me.

FAITH IN ME vs KNOWLEDGE

Thursday 01-19-2017 :1Corinthians 1:10-19 QT
1 For I have been informed … that there are quarrels among you.
12 Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, “I am of Paul,” and “I of Apollos,” and “I of Cephas,” and “I of Christ.”
13 Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.”

*****************

Terry, shame on you! You know, the only Way, Truth and Life is Me; then after someone comes to Me, you present your knowledge, persuasions and practices as the criteria of unity rather then Me being your rallying pont. Wisdom, knowledge and practices now have become your ralling point – you put too much emphasis on the message proclaimer than you do the Message Sender. Remember, I used a donkey to be a message proclaimer- the best I recall no one is teaching that you need to be like a donkey.

All I’m saying is fix you eyes on Me, keep Me your central focus. Enjoy each other in light of your joy in and with Me.
