JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING ONE WITH JESUS- THE NAME PART 2

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1:4 King James Version

How did Jesus obtain His Name? Have you ever thought about that? According to the scripture above He inherited it. This is something that you must take and chew on like a spiritual steak. We talked about previously having communion with The Word, spending time and having intercourse with The Word, becoming One with Him. If you are born again you are an heir of God and you are also a joint heir with Jesus Christ. This is why Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. Christianity is FAMILY that is even more close than your natural blood family. God IS your Father. Jesus IS your brother. Take a look at how Jesus acknowledged this change after He was raised from the dead.

Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” Matthew 28:10 New International Version

Before He died, Jesus always referred to them as His disciples. But now after He has risen from the dead and the finished work is complete and He has reconciled all of us back to the Father He now calls them “my brothers.” THAT’S FAMILY. They are now just like Him. Jesus prayed in John 17 that they would be ONE with Him even as He and The Father are ONE. If anyone gets their prayer answered you better believe Jesus does (and so do you).

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; Romans 8:17 King James Version Since you are a joint heir with Christ everything Christ has and gets is yours. If not, then you are not joint. Joint means that you share equally in all things. Everything that one heir gets the others get equally. EVERYTHING means EVERYTHING. Now in our opening text we see that Jesus inherited His Name. His Name is part of His inheritance and if it is a part of His inheritance then guess who else inherits THE NAME? You do!!! Jesus’s Name is part of your eternal inheritance.

That is why He is the one who mediates a new covenant between God and people, so that all who are called can receive the eternal inheritance God has promised them. For Christ died to set them free from the penalty of the sins they had committed under that first covenant. Hebrews 9:15 New Living Translation

You have an ‘eternal inheritance’ that God the Father, Poppa has promised you. Jesus’s Name has been given to you.

And there is no salvation in any other man, for there is no other name under Heaven given to the children of men by which it is necessary to receive life. Acts 4:12 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

The Name has been given to us as an inheritance just as it was given to Jesus by inheritance. The Name of Jesus IS YOURS!!! When you realize that THE NAME of Jesus is yours and all the power, all the glory, all the health, all the life, all the strength, all the wisdom, all the righteousness, all the holiness that comes with that Name BELONGS to you, you will begin to do the greater works effortlessly. Why? Because it’s not you. It’s Jesus in you working thru His Name. It is all because of the Lord Jesus that we HAVE all that we HAVE but the key is you HAVE to know that you HAVE IT!!! If you don’t have the keys to your car you don’t have any confidence or any assurance that you can get in your car at that moment. A rich man or rich woman’s spouse has access to all the resources and wealth of their spouse by law. This is a legal transaction. Taking the name of their spouse gives them legal access to those resources because they are considered the same, one. Look at what Peter said here in Acts 3:6 when he was talking to the man at the gate called beautiful who was lame.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Acts 3:6 New International Version

Did you notice what Peter said? He said, “but what I do HAVE I give to you.” Then Peter immediately gives the man THE NAME. What is key here is that Peter knew HE HAD THE NAME. That word ‘have’ there is the greek word echo. Echo means I have, hold or possess. Peter knew he had THE NAME of Jesus and all the power and ability of it. In addition to that he later took no credit for it and then explained that it was not him but THE NAME that strengthened, raised up and gave that once lame man perfect health. So the man just did not get his legs healed, if there was anything else going on in his body that was fixed as well because it says the man was given perfect health. Other translations say complete soundness which is derived from the Word shalom.

“And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16 New American Standard Bible And upon the ground of our faith in His Name, this man whom you are attentively gazing at with a critical, discerning eye and whom you positively identify as the person you know- His Name made him strong, and the faith which is exercised through Him gave to him this entire soundness in the sight of all of you. Acts 3:16 Kenneth Wuest Translation

So know that THE NAME is yours!!! It is yours by inheritance just as Jesus inherited it. Use it like its yours, like it belongs to you because IT DOES!!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT BEING ONE WITH JESUS- PART 1

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one John 17:22 New American Standard Bible

WE ARE “ONE” WITH JESUS! Once you ‘know’ this that Truth will make you free. Many people misquote that scripture in the Bible.

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32 New International Version

What they say is, “The truth will make you free.” But that is not true. It’s the truth that you ‘know’ that will make you free. The word know in that verse is the greek word ginosko. Ginosko means I am taking in knowledge, come to know, learn; and or: I ascertained, realized. It also means to know, especially through personal experience. It is also the word that is used in Genesis when the scripture says Adam knew his wife as well as the in the chapter of Luke when Mary the mother of Jesus asked the angel, “How shall this thing be seeing I know not a man. So it implies intercourse or sexual intimacy. Let’s focus on intercourse for a moment, not to be crude but for the purpose of getting deeper understanding. In Mary’s case she said she did not know a man. Now obviously Mary knew men because she knew Joseph, Jesus’s stepfather. So obviously this type of knowing is not the same as the knowing that is mentioned in John 8:32, Genesis 4:1 and Luke 1:34. What people do not realize about sex is that it takes place on all levels, spiritual, mental or soulish and physical. So sexual intercourse affects one’s spirit, soul and body. Inside of a marriage covenant sex works as a weapon for you however outside of a marriage covenant sex works as a weapon against a persons spirit, soul and body. I know what you are thinking, what does all this have to do with Jesus and being One with Him. A whole lot.

In Genesis 3:8 it talks about God the Father walking in the garden in the cool of the day. What was God looking for Adam for? To have communion with him. To talk with him. To just enjoy his presence and spend Fatherly time with him just as any good father does. But that particular day Adam had intercourse with devil and had become separated from God. Now when God ask where are you, He was not talking about Adam’s physical location. He meant where is the Me I put in you to keep you connected to Me? He was not looking for Adam’s flesh he was looking for the spirit, the breath that He had put into Adam. The spirit of God in you is a signature, a beacon to God and the devil. The devil knows you belong to God. Why? The devil is a spirit. He recognizes spirit. God’s spirit in you makes you One with Him

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. I Corinthians 2:12 King James Version

Now the word know there is the greek word oida and it means to have seen or perceived, hence to know. Notice the past tense in the definition. This scripture is specifically talking about your born again spirit. Your spirit knows things your mind does not know. It know every single thing that belongs to it by the Spirit and Word of God. It knows that it (that you) have eternal life, eternal salvation, eternal redemption and an eternal inheritance. With all that knowledge it would do you well to find out what your spirit knows and when you do you will find out what God knows. How do you do this? The primary way this is done is through knowing The Word of God which is not something but Who is Someone. That SomeOne is Jesus. Jesus is The Word. John Chapter 1 says so and explains how it is so. That Bible you have is not something, it is SomeOne. When you spend time with Him then you began to know Him and you have intercourse with The Word and The Word will impregnate you with health, joy, wisdom, shalom and every spiritual blessing fit for you according to Heaven’s standards for you as a son or daughter of God and a citizen of Heaven. The words spiritual blessing does not means its spiritual in the sense of immaterial. It means it has its origin or beginning in the spirit realm or emanating from the spirit and can and will manifest in the natural world as you exercise faith and intercourse in The Word regarding it by receiving or taking it. Look it up yourself. That word spiritual in Ephesians 1:3 is the greek word pneumatikos which means of the spirit.

As you commune with The Word with Jesus, believing and receiving what He says, intercourse takes place. Knowing takes place. And you begin to know the Truth (Jesus) and knowing the Truth makes you free. And guess Who Is FREE? The One who made you free so that makes you One with Him. You have already received of His Spirit. Be sure to receive to receive ALL that comes with Jesus.

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Romans 8:32 New American Standard Bible

Do you see that? HOW WILL HE (GOD THE FATHER) NOT ALSO WITH HIM freely give us all things? French fries come with the combo meal and so does a drink. Find out what all comes ‘with Him’.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. I Corinthians 2:12 King James Version

God the Father desires you to KNOW all that is yours through Christ. It’s His will. So know what is yours and you won’t have to say, “Thy will be done!!!” His Will will be done because you know the Truth and the Truth makes you just as free as Jesus is. That is Oneness!!!

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!

JUST DA TRUTH -ABOUT THE PRESENT TRUTH

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.  2 Peter 1:12  KJV

Imagine walking up to Abraham as he is on his way to rescue his nephew Lot from the five kings that have just kidnapped him and members of their entire village and saying to him, “Abraham, thou shalt not kill!!”.  He would look at you as if you were crazy and if you stood in his way you may get taken out for blocking him from rescuing his family.  Now imagine popping up in the Garden of Eden and saying to Adam, “Adam not make sure you don’t tell a lie. Thou shalt not lie or bear false witness.”  Again, Adam would look at you with the same look Abraham would.  Why?  Because you are trying to force on them a future truth that is not in effect for their time.  Adam and Abraham were not and are not under law or the ten commandments.  They both were under the covenant of grace.  The only law that was in effect for Adam was do not eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Eve could have murdered Adam and it would not have been sin because there was no law against murder at that time.

What is my point for bringing up this example.  It is to show you a simple but very powerful truth that the entire Body of Christ needs to understand and that is how to walk in present truth.  Today many believers and pastors are trying to preach and command people to live by the law, the ten commandments.  But the time of the law has passed.  It is a past truth that God is no longer having his people live by and under.  Don’t take my word for it, take THE WORD for it.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.  Romans 10:4 KJV

If you believe in Christ then you have to agree with THE WORD who is Jesus, who is Christ that Christ is the end of the law.  Today you here of all types of ministers and well know preacher speaking of judgement and that the US and other countries and people’s are being judged for their sinful and wrong life. These things are simply not true.  Because of Jesus’s sacrifice the sins of every person ever born and who ever will be born are NOW FORGIVEN and covered by HIS BLOOD.  The only thing left to do is to receive that forgiveness by accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Jesus is the Mediator of the New Covenant, not the Old Covenant,  God the Father has some very specific things to say about the New Covenant.

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.  Hebrews 8:12 KJV

Romans explains it in greater detail.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.  Romans 6:14 KJV

Grace is the present truth that we are under, not the law.  We must learn to walk in present truth and that present truth is GRACE!!!

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17 KJV

When Moses and Elijah appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration, God the Father said something very specific.  He said, “This is my beloved Son, hear you Him!!”  Moses represents the law and Elijah represents the prophet’s. We are not in the time of the law and prophets, that time has passed.  Does God still speak through prophets? Yes but His primary way is speaking through The Word by way of the Holy Spirit,  Be sure to walk in present truth.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
