The Struggle

Seventh Thunder July 02, 2018

The struggle against our own soul is the fight for life, and there's only one way to win, and overcome its world.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

A righteous mind, and the knowledge of the Kingdom, added. Given by revelation, which is the riches of his grace, and not just by believing in Jesus, but actually doing what he says.

Ephesians 2:7-11 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

Once people have learnt how to circumcise their hearts, the knowledge of the kingdom and the Father's righteousness is added, slowly, especially whilst searching the scriptures for instruction in righteousness.

2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

These things aren't figured out via debate with man, nor learned by endless reading and studying, but more knowledge is added to you as you preach the gospel, and continuously seek the Father within, in constant prayer, and not the religious type of praying, which comes to nothing.

2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Because people prefer to seek the word of man instead of the word of God, and because of that, people rather have the praise of their fellows than of God.

John 5:43-44 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

Granted many believe in God, but they don't believe in how Jesus taught people on how to connect with the Father, and it is because of their unbelief, as he says, why they can't enter into the spirit, aka the kingdom, because their hearts rule over their minds 100%.

Hebrews 3:10-13 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

People rather just believe, by just believing that they're saved. If you truly believe in someone, then you would do as they say. What people truly believe in is man's words ABOUT Jesus, and man's words ABOUT God, but not actually in them themselves and after all, only one can give you that faith in the first place.

Ephesians 1:9-12 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

The whole point of preaching the Gospel is to prepare people for God's purpose.

John 6:44-45 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

Sadly, the very thing that people need to be saved from is what is holding them captive, and people expect to use the very thing they're enslaved by to free themselves. Meaning your own thoughts, intellect, memory, imagination, and the emotions they bring.

Matthew 12:25-26 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

Ultimately, people need to cast Satan out of the Kingdom of Heaven, which is within, in spirit.

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

And the knowledge of Satan is revealed using that rock of revelation. Then you'll why the mystery of iniquity is already at work in people, and why it needs to be taken out of the way, getting Satan behind you. Because whilst Satan is in front of people, then people will perceive and believe the world through him, and his deceitful ways are what rules people's perception, not only of the world, but themselves.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-11 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

The knowledge added to your spirit, and a renewed righteous mind, fully armoured to resist the wiles of the devil, is the spell that breaks that strong delusion all people are under. People will need that to cast Satan out of their minds which he takes with violence.

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Like all people when they read things, they can only take a carnal minds point of view, and thus can only understand the things of the flesh. Not helped by ones own natural vanity, meaning that they can only grasp things that has a personal meaning to themselves. God is no respecter of persons though, since person's foundation and character is built upon the contents of their own hearts, and is in that who people trust the most.

Luke 6:45-48 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

And that house, the Father's house is the spirit. He renews the mind with the rock that is revelation, and then you become his workmanship. The floods that beat upon the house? Internalise it. The floods are your heart's thoughts, all clothed in sin, that evil treasure which all men bring forth. Like as said, as in the 'Days of Noah'. It's not the floods of the world, for again the flesh profits nothing, it is the floods that drown the spirit, the spirit which gives life. You have to get Satan behind you, so that you can see with the spirit, and understand with your spirit. Your personality, your character, is something God does not respect, and it is that which covers your spirit.

Ephesians 1:17-18 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

People value their own knowledge above God's, along with the knowledge of the world, and literally millions are experts in the ways of the world, for that is their course.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

A course that is only changed by diligently seeking the Father, within, asking him to reveal all things to you, and asking for his righteousness. A big problem is that people think that by just believing in God or Jesus makes them righteous automatically. Seeds need rain to grow, and nothing is growing if there is a famine in the land.

Ephesians 3:3-5 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Like said before, none could receive revelation, nor knew how to turn to the Father before Jesus came into the flesh, to teach man about the spirit, the Kingdom.

Matthew 13:17-19 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

No mind was made righteous, and none were raised up, and understanding things in human terms won't help people either. So people need to flee to the mountain to receive that knowledge of God in the spirit.

Joel 3:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth out of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

Spiritual seed like all seed needs light to grow and the rain to drink. Redemption isn't a quick and easy fix like how the religious seem to think, and to continue that rhyme, the new wine will need a new body to reveal the true vine.

John 15:1-8 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

So as Jesus did in the flesh and made men whole and clean, so must we do in the spirit, so that others may be made whole and clean. For as the spirit is greater than the flesh, and so our works must be greater too.

John 14:10-15 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments.

And as Jesus said, the flesh profits nothing, it is the spirit that gives life, so ask in the spirit, for the things of the spirit, because these things are not about making your life on Earth get better, for that will end in soon enough, and obviously eternal life doesn't.

Romans 5:17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

And his disciples did this, knowing full well he was the Messiah, with faith they did his word, and applied his teachings to themselves, so that they might better instruct others, and well did they do it, and thus received the promise, because they were doers of the word and not just hearers only. Their fruit can be seen and picked, for they wrote the Gospels themselves in Jesus name, lead by the spirit, divinely inspiring their words.

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

No point in worshipping a name, if you do not do what he says to do. Instead people worship a man in a building made with hands, believing that they are of God, abiding his house, which really is a den of thieves, some even claim they're prophets within and their members will believe them. The simple fact is, those who receive revelation, and have the word abiding in themselves have no need to visit a Church, nor belong to a religious organisation. You know, just like Jesus didn't.

1 John 3:6-8 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

So, Jesus was sent into the world,  full in the knowledge of God, so that he could preach and do his Father's work. What came to give is a new covenant of the spirit, which does away with the covenant of the Old Testament, which is of the flesh, and of the soul in a man.

2 Corinthians 3:6 And He has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, but unfortunately as Jesus said.

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Such are they held sway by the leaven of religious doctrine, learned by man and given by man.

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

It is quite clear, Jesus was sent from Heaven to teach people about the spirit, since the spirit is from Heaven.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

The tribulation is in the spirit, not the flesh. It is the battle to be had, the struggle against our own hearts, not to mention its devices. Once people begin the process of renewing their minds, minds which are currently conformed to the Earth, wrongly expecting the tribulation to be in the flesh. The Kingdom is being taken by violence, and the violence is that which is done to our spirit.

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

The tribulation can't come upon all people on the Earth, unless it is in all people within, and tribulation is Satan fighting back because it knows its end is nigh, especially in those who are having their minds renewed. In others, Satan still has full control, making people believe they're a living soul.

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

And where is the Kingdom of Heaven?

Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

So, to worship God, seeking him first, one must do as Jesus said, and worship God in his likeness. Since;

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

That is the straight and narrow path, and oh how easy it is to go astray. So, as said in;

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Are our hearts on the Father within, in spirit, or have we been deceived to love the world? Serving mammon, obsessed by the events of the world, looking for signs for the end to come, when the only end people should be concerned with is their own.

Matthew 6:21-23 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Remember that eye = mind, a mind that is focused solely on this world.

John 3:18-20 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

And the pride of most people, who think they know it all, because they have read or heard something else somewhere, is what takes them down in ignorance. Few people like to be corrected, especially corrected unto perfection, lest they see their own sin.

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Repent, meaning to turn away from your love of the world, and your own hearts lusts and desires, because this world belongs and is ruled  by the wicked one, and loving the world is succumbing to its temptations.

1 John 2:14-16 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

And the wicked one within us will fight against our righteous minds, our quickening spirits, trying time and time again, get us to once again serve its law of sin.

Romans 7:22-25 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

The Law of God is righteousness, and it is God who gifts it. It cannot be taught, nor developed by man solely alone, which would only lead to pride and further corruption anyway, since one would boast, and grow arrogant.

2 Corinthians 4:3-5 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

Those who are lost are those with the pride of life, the love of their own wisdom, gleaned from this evil world. Wisdom that for over 2000 years hasn't lead to the world becoming a better place for most, outside of technology, nor has brought people closer to God.

Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.

In fact in these latter days, more and more corruption is being revealed in these doctrines of the Nicolaitans, the conquerors of the lay people. The ruling religious authorities of the world. Consider this, why do religious organisations really want you to worship their God, even to the point of invading lands, terrorism and even slavery and abuse. What is really driving that, something that seemingly wants us focused on this world and its peoples at all cost. Where is the peace on this Earth? The sad thing is, technically it really isn't that hard to attain. What's stopping people?

1 Corinthians 1:19-21 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

All things will seem foolish to those that don't believe, by design. The natural man, born in corruption, shall not put on incorruption, without turning within to the Father in spirit to be renewed and reproved by him. For in correction, lays perfection.

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Because without a renewed mind, that transformation, one cannot receive the full truth of the spirit, from the spirit which teaches all things.

1 Corinthians 2:13-15 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
