Soul strives for the FAITH of the Gospel, not religion but the Gospel

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 Copy Right

  • Again we are still a step ahead in the process of Salvation because our Soul knows once awakened what he needs.
  • Once soul is awakened, he as “Him male” and he as “Him female” will strive for the faith of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and not religion.
  • Strive for the faith means to make a great effort to achieve, obtain, and maintain the faith in Christ.
  • And most of all please God, because without faith its impossible to please God.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he Him: male and female created He them.

Philippians 3:14 is spiritual striving. Paus said, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

  • Salvation is the highest calling to the spirit man in you.
  • Faith in this high calling is the highest calling in the life of the soul of man.

What is the faith of the Gospel?

  • Faith in the Gospel is faith in Jesus Christ, which is the first principle of the Gospel. Romans 10:9-10 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.                   10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
  • Jesus serves as the foundation for our system of belief, behavior, and attitude for the faith of the Gospel.
  • Faith in Jesus Christ is imperative to our salvation that we exercise faith in Him, for He is the Messiah, the Creator and Redeemer of the world, our Advocate and Mediator with the Father, in the Father, and for the Father.
  • Imperative here means of vital importance; crucial for your soul’s sake and survival; and essential and urgent thing for the life of your soul.
  • Jesus paid the price and the penalty for our sins and ransomed us from death and hell.
  • God saw the state of His creation, the spirit man’s heart and rectified a plan for all mankind.
  • Rectify means to correct; to put right; convert, alternating the current; purify or refine a substance by repeated or continuous distillation (the extraction of the essential meaning of or most important aspects of something).
  • We need a Lord and Savior for and over our soul in this earth.

Definitions for gospel and religion.

Gospel

  • Is the teaching of the revelation of Christ, His doctrine, principles, beliefs, His life, etc., that reveals a thing that is absolute truth.
  • In the New Testament it denotes the good tidings of the Kingdom of God and of its salvation through Christ, to be received by faith, based on Jesus’ expiatory death, His burial, resurrection, and ascension.

Religion

  • Is a belief with an act in a particular system of faith and worship; the belief in and the worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods; a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.
  • Religion does not ascribe to God; it does not credit God for all things or attribute all things to Him.
  • Religion is a set of organized, beliefs, practices, and systems that relate to the belief and worship of a controlling force, such as a personal god or another superhuman, supernatural being. This is what we see today in the local assemblies and in their gatherings.
  • Religion is everybody coming together with their own personal set of institutionalized system of religious beliefs, attitudes, and practices.
  • No oneness and no being in one accord!
  • Being in one accord means of the same mind or same spirit; being likeminded; being unified which is the state of being one; combining all of the various parts together as one, as in one body, one mind and that mind is the mind of Christ. Agreement to conformity to act out according to the Spirit of God’s Will.

Ephesians 4:12-13 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

What is the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

  • The Gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s plan of Salvation in love for all mankind, designed by God, and orchestrated by God; demonstrated through His only begotten Son Jesus. St John 3:16, for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • Begotten here means to bring a child into existence by the process of reproduction. God did this through the virgin Mary.
  • Here in this scripture is the proof that you must be in Christ and have the faith of Christ in order to join God and to know how to treat Him (God) in a specific manner.
  • Why did God send Jesus? Why does God want mankind back? Because we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them, Ephesians 2:10.
  • That we should walk in them: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and “after their likeness”.
  • After their likeness here means to “function like”. God only functions by a substance called faith.
  • Jesus paid our ransom for the debt called sin that we all owe to Satan, the devil, etc. The Word of God says that we’ve been bought with a price. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says for ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
  • Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh to show us all how to live a godly, perfect, and holy life in the earth according to the Will of God. Romans 8:1-4 says there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. 2 for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 for what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
  • Jesus had a job to do and a tall order from God to fulfill for our soul to be brought back to its original Creator. And He did just what God said!
  • It is called the gospel of Jesus Christ because the Atonement of Jesus Christ is central to this plan.
  • Atonement is the reparation for a wrong or injury, the reconciliation between God and all mankind through Jesus Christ.
  • So, what is the gospel of Jesus Christ? It is the gospel of Jesus Christ in the message of the good news of salvation offered to mankind by grace through faith in the finished works of Christ on the cross. Ephesians 2:8-9 8 for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 not of works, lest any man should boast.
  • It is only the Gospel of Jesus Christ in His faith that will get you into the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
  • Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
  • Your soul will need the Gospel in order to enter eternal Heaven!
  • Your soul must be transformed by the Spirit of the Gospel in order to enter into eternal Heaven.
  • Your soul is the mortal part of the spirit man in you.
  • This part of you must be able to on the day of his calling take on immortality in order to hear the Lord say, “well done thy good and faithful servant” or stay mortal as he was in the earth and hear the Lord say, “depart from Me for I knew you not”.
  • 1 Corinthians 15:53-54 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
  • We are living lives in the earth as spirit beings encased in bodies struggling because of your body and its flesh nature hindering you from discovering who you really are? What is your purpose here? Who is your Creator known to you as our Father?
  • These bodies that we are in will keep you from the knowledge of good and truth. Why? Because of the flesh sin nature, its’ past, and its knowledge of good and evil that is destined to cause you to struggle until you give up on obtaining the righteousness of God.
  • Romans 7:18-19 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to Will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
  • The flesh of your body has its own nature that is not of God and His righteousness.
  • This flesh that covers the body, soul, and spirit is cunning, deceitful, and filled with the evils of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • It’s sinful nature is what influences and triggers your soul’s emotions through your 5-sense knowledge of good and evil. This is why you are always feeling stuff in Salvation!
  • When I want to do good my flesh nature has another motive that is not the intent of God, nor do it have a love for my brethren that I’m doing the good toward.
  • My flesh and your flesh always have a scheme and a cunning way of doing things because of its serpentine nature.
  • Our natures were changed when Adam: male and female sinned against God.
  • Flesh must die to the Will of God for you to learn, practice, and desire the things of God.
  • Your soul will never strive for the faith of Christ if you keep allowing your flesh and its Will to dominate you, deafen you from hearing the Word of God, and always entertaining your flesh and its desires.
  • Your flesh strives to live in your past so that you as a new creature will never experience his new life in Christ Jesus as to becoming a Son also.
  • So we say to you to stay encouraged in your journey and its wilderness experiences; encourage your soul every step of the way in Christ; and keep him hopeful that he will be made whole in and through the faith of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not having a form of godliness, but being the true form of God’s righteousness unto the perfection of the measure of that perfect man named Christ Jesus in you.

Amen

Spiritual Discernment with Love

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 Copy Right

Psalm 14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

  • It is a terrible and hard struggle to give up your own Will and its way to the Will and Way of the Spirit of God, your Creator and Father; to seek knowledge and understanding of Him.
  • Therefore, God must have your “whole self” and not the partial bits and pieces that we want to give Him from our view and method of “surrendering all”.
  • When we speak of the natural man, we speak of his state of being carnal, concerned only with one’s own self, own body, its gratification, need and desires. This is the physical man, and his desires which causes anger, hatred, sadness, bitterness, etc., toward God and you.
  • The natural man, your natural man is spiritually blind, spiritually ignorant, lacks spiritual knowledge and understanding, and is “rebellious” toward any truth and all truth that pertains to the knowledge of God.
  • The natural man, your natural man is carnal, rebellious, disobedient, and rejects the Will of God because of the nature of his flesh.
  • When Adam and Eve sinned against God, they lost their image (which means nature) of God and His covering in the knowledge of good and truth over them to take on another nature (image) that is now of the knowledge of good and evil and is of the serpentine spirit of Satan.
  • The name serpent is one of Satan’s characters.

1 Corinthians 2:14 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.

  • The Word of God teaches us that the “flesh nature” of the spirit man is an enemy to God.
  • The Word of God teaches us that when we walk after the flesh, we only mind the things of the flesh, but if we walk after the Spirit, we do mind the things of the Spirit. Romans 8:5.
  • The Word of God also teaches us that the “flesh nature” is carnal minded, worldly, and is God’s enemy, for it is not subject to the Law of God and neither can it be, know, or do. Romans 8:6-7.
  • The Word of God goes on to say that they or we that are in the flesh and its nature cannot please God. Romans 8:8.
  • God knows from your hearts view when you have been transformed from the flesh nature back to His image, after their likeness.

What is spiritual discernment?

  • Spiritual discernment is Wisdom. Two separate gifts that work well together.
  • Discernment is discrimination; the ability to judge well; acuteness of judgment and understanding; in Christian contexts perception in the absence of judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual guidance and understanding; being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure.
  • Discernment is a spiritual gift given by God through the indwelling of the Holy Ghost possessing you to help you as a new creature to reach the best decision in Him, comply to it and act on it. 1 Corinthians 12:10.
  • The Word of God and some other translations may use another word (synonyms) like wisdom, understanding, discretion, prudence, testing, and sensing. These words used signifies that the subject is discernment.
  • Spiritual discernment is a skill of being able to perceive through the senses at a spiritual level or from another dimension or as Heaven sees.
  • The purpose and use of spiritual discernment is to be able to determine through the guidance of the Holy Spirit what information serves you as well as what you serve to others spiritually.
  • This gift is so necessary and important in the life and journey of every new creature in you and his development, as you connect with the Father in relationship.
  • The new creature in you must obtain and maintain a spiritual perception with a spiritual orientation and understanding.
  • Your practice of this gift and its perfection in you will only come from the teachings of the Lord through His Word on how to hear and distinguish the difference between good and evil.
  • Man cannot teach you how to spiritually discern. Man cannot instruct you on how to do and operate in the gifts of God according to God’s order and pleasures.
  • Spiritual discernment is the Grace of God to see into the unseen or unknown and to correctly perceive, and to rightly divide that which you see and hear spiritually by the Spirit of God.
  • You and I can have all the gifts, part of the gifts, or just one gift but without love they profit you nothing.
  • Spiritual Love is the greatest!

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not, every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of god; because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

  • The times we are living in today requires spiritual knowledge, spiritual understanding, and spiritual wisdom to be able to know things in the Spirit as you deal with and are around spirits.
  • To try the spirit is to know the confession of every spirit and if that spirit is confessing that Jesus the Christ came in the flesh. 1 John 4:2-3.
  • Try means to make an attempt or effort to do something; visit, test, or do (something new or different) in order to see if it is suitable, effective, or pleasant.
  • It is not whether they say they know God or Jesus, but it is their confession that will try their spirit. Even if they lie, then you should know them also by the fruit they bear whether it is of Christ or the devil.
  • When we make the confession of Christ it tries your spirit.
  • When you begin to speak with people your first question should be what is your confession if they are a believer?
  • A new convert must hear about Christ so that they will have to make a choice to make a confession of Christ as Lord and Savior or not.
  • Spiritual discernment will allow you to recognize and know the false manipulative actions of their Will toward you.
  • What is their motive verses God’s intent for you?
  • What is the nature of their spirit?
  • You will be able to recognize their confession when teachings are from the Spirit of God through the individual or persons speaking; or if it is Satan; or if it is being taught from a human perspective and not a spiritual perception.
  • Satan deceives believers because they don’t know how to distinguish between good and truth from what is legal, lawful, and acceptable in the Kingdom of Heaven; instead, they will try to discern through their 5-sense knowledge of good and evil incorporated through their flesh to understand the Will of God and His people.
  • Spirit discernment active in a child of God will allow them to know their family members that are wearing the mask of deceit along with their motives against you and your spiritual growth in Christ.
  • Do you possess spiritual discernment?
  • In your prayer ask God for a heart of spiritual discernment, to be able to distinguish His voice from the voice of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
  • We should be able to discern the spirits of each other through our spiritual senses and not our carnal flesh.
  • Only the Spirit of the Lord can heighten your 5-senses through the Holy Ghost to discern all spirits with love through the knowledge of good and truth.
  • The first spiritual sense is hearing by the ear, and we know according to the Word that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, Romans 10:17. We should also have an experience of hearing the Word.
  • The Word will bring in experiences and bring you into experiences.
  • The spiritual sense of hearing is to have an affection for truth and will awaken the soul and bring him to life in Christ.
  • It is through the spiritual sense of hearing that we have a willing desire, a wanting, and a  longing to have the things of God.
  • Spiritual things cannot be discerned through the physical senses.

Hebrews 4:12-13 12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

In closing,

Solomon asked for a heart of spiritual discernment, 1 Kings 3:3-15

3 And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.

4 And the King went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that alter.

5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.

7 And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.

9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.

11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

15 And Solomon awoke; and behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast to all his servants.

  • Because Solomon did not ask for temporal riches, he didn’t ask God to kill all his enemies, he didn’t ask for long life, but he asked to be able to honor God as his father David did and for a wise and understanding heart to be able to judge God’s chosen people discerning between good and evil.
  • A wise and understanding heart is a hearing heart.
  • Jesus could perceive the heart of all men.
  • Paul exercised the gift of discernment in the Book of Acts 16:16-18 when he cast out the spirit of divination.

Isaiah 11:3-5 3 And shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears: 4 But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins.

Amen

How to enter the presence of God as a spirit being?

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 Copy Right

Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forever more.

  • The Spirit of the Lord will show us the path of life, our life, and how to live it in the earth according to His Will.
  • The Spirit of the Lord will guide and lead us into the right paths of God, in His Divine Presence with joy promised.
  • It is the Spirit of the Lord that will teach you how to desire His desires and give Him pleasure.

Psalm 37:4-5 4 Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.

  • Delight defined here means great pleasure; please someone greatly.
  • Commit defined here means to be dedicated to; delight; faithful; loyal; devoted.
  • It is the Spirit of the Lord that will teach you and guide you once in His Presence what He requires of you, i.e., in prayer, praise, worship, communication, etc.
  • Everything we do in Christ with God must be done in the spirituality of man.
  • It is the “spirit of prayer” that will lead you to pray. It is Jesus, our intercessor that will intercept.
  • The Spirit of Prayer is the Spirit of God. He inspires and guides us in prayers.
  • The Spirit of Prayer is prayer with Divine help. It is trusting in faith and relying on God to hear, understand, and act on our behalf.
  • Praying in the Spirit is a gift received through having the faith of Christ in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

Jude 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

  • When our human weaknesses prevent us from relating to God correctly, the Spirit will intercede for us by pleading our case before God.

Romans 8: 26-27 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings (wordless groans) which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

  • Prayer is the Will of God in Christ Jesus for us, 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
  • It is the Spirit of God that enables and empowers His people to pray.
  • Praying in the Spirit is a divine activity that requires the Spirit of God to perform and one appropriates through the faith in Christ Jesus and His finished work.
  • We can only reach God in Spirit through the truth of Christ Jesus, St John 4:24.
  • God’s guidance and teaching comes to us only through Christ by means of the Spirit.

St John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

  • We often come to the Sanctuary, the House of Prayer with everything and anything on the “mind of our hearts”.
  • When we come, we have no desire to enter the Presence of God; we have no hope to enter His Presence, but the Word of God gives us the set up on how to enter His Presence according to His Will, not ours.
  • When we come to the Sanctuary, the House of Prayer we come tired in the flesh and worn in our thoughts from the issues and cares of life, the workplace, and in the pending things that still must be done before you can find a place to rest and lay down from the cares of this world and your flesh.
  • To enter in His Presence is a heart thing, it’s not a physical or natural thing or way.
  • Enter therefore with all your whole heart, mind, and soul.
  • To enter God’s holy presence, you must come through the only way that He has provided. If you try to approach God in any other way, the consequences could be severe. Nadab and Abihu, Aaron’s two sons who were priests, got creative and offered “strange fire,” which God had not commanded. Leviticus 10:1-3
  • Their inexcusable folly of trying to please the Lord their way instead of the Lord’s Way was dangerous.
  • God rejected their offering that He found to be offensive to Him, so He consumed them with fire.
  • Strange in the Hebrew translation means unauthorized, foreign, or profane.

Leviticus 10:3 KJV Amplified Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I (and My Will, not their own) will be acknowledged as hallowed by those who come near Me, and before all the people I will be honored. And Aaron said nothing.

  • God is Holy! He requires anything or anyone that comes before Him to be holy. In the sight of the people, He will be honored as Holy.
  • God knows our hearts. He knows what we truly believe before we enter His Presence. He knows our motives toward His intents before we appear in His Presence.
  • God was not going to allow the disobedience of Aaron’s sons to set a precedent for future disregard of His Law.
  • Even through Jesus He is that same God and He changes not! Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Set up spiritual precedence’s on how to enter in to get God’s permission to enter and on how to enter in by thanking Him and praising Him until He ask what you want.

Once in His Presence be careful about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6.

  • What is it that keeps you from God’s presence? It is your sin that separates and blocks you from God and God is not listening to your prayers nor will He usher you in His presence.

Psalm 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Iniquity defined here as immoral or grossly unjust behavior

  • Coming to the House of Prayer, the Sanctuary is the door to enter in His Presence.
  • When we are headed to the Sanctuary, we should be in expectancy of encountering the Spirit of God and His Presence through His Word.
  • Your posture should be in an expectancy of going to the Sanctuary with an attitude of hearing the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth.
  • Posture defined here as a particular way of dealing with or considering something; an approach or attitude; behave in a way that is intended to impress or mislead; to place (someone) in a particular attitude or pose.
  • We should never try to enter in His Presence by just checking off a box, as to say I met the requirement of going to Church today.

Check yourself! Check the state of your mind and heart before you enter His gates and courts, that is before to get to and in the Sanctuary.

Put on Psalm 100:4, Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

  • You say, the Bible teaches us to come as we are. Yes, this is true, but when you come to Jesus you come with a made up mind that says “I tired of my way of living and I need a Savior”.

St Matthew 11:28-30 28 Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.

  • Yoke defined here as a frame fitting over the neck and shoulders of a person, used for carrying pails or baskets.

As you enter His gates and His courts be thankful through a time of loving Him and looking back to see how good God’s been; memorializing His faithfulness as you are entering.

Make sure that your heart is or has been spiritually circumcised.

Deuteronomy 10:16-17 16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked. 17 For the Lord your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:

  • In the Old Testament the Word tells us to circumcise the foreskin of your minds and hearts to no longer be stubborn and hard hearted for God is not a partial God and takes no bribes.
  • When you say, “I’m trying is like a bribe”.
  • Circumcision is a matter of the heart of every born again believer by the Spirit, not by the letter.
  • In Deuteronomy 10, God’s love had been bestowed upon the Israelites, demonstrated and manifest in their deliverance from Egypt and their sustenance throughout their wilderness wanderings because it was bestowed upon their fathers and the patriarchs.
  • Sustenance defined as food and drink regarded as a source of strength; nourishment; the maintaining of someone or something in life or existence.
  • Moses summarized the essence of Israel’s religion in Deuteronomy. Covenant is the basic idea in the relationship initiated by God with Israel, not Law, but covenant.

Ezekiel 36:26-27 26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

  • God deals with us in “spiritual wholeness”, not partial wholeness.
  • There is a preparation for those that are called into positions of authority in Christ.
  • We cannot offer to Him proud “sacrifices”, “bribes”, and promises that we cannot keep and that are unworthy of Him.
  • He seeks those who come to Him in humility, ready to sacrifice their pride and lay before Him humbled with a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart that He will not despise.
  • God was not going to allow the disobedience of Aaron’s sons to set a precedent for future disregard of His Law then or now.
  • Church going is just a religious act nowadays. It has become mundane.
  • Mundane defined here as lacking interest or excitement; dull; of this earthly world rather than a heavenly or spiritual one.
  • God sent Jesus to pave the path that will open the way back to Him as He is drawing and calling us.
  • Today, our children and children, children are battling against things that our parents, our parents, parents, and we ourselves have decided on that was and is against God.
  • Seek the Lord God! Fall in love with the Him and His Way in order to discover in knowledge His Will that will guide and lead us back to Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Amen

Living Right in The Earth To Be Eligible For a New Body For Soul

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 Copy Right

1 Corinthians 15:34-58 Read from the Bible

  • Your fleshly body is just an approving ground for the next body for your soul.
  • Your soul and spirit lives in a corrupt body, to one day put off this body for a new body.
  • In the time of our awaited transition, we must be eligible to put on immortality according to the Word of God.
  • Eligible is defined here as having the right to do or obtain something; satisfying the appropriate conditions.
  • Our condition is the Word of God and its prescribed method(s).
  • If you don’t have another body death will reign over, you at that point.
  • We know that the Word teaches us that the sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law, 1 Corinthians 15:56.
  • If God does not comfort, you when you are dying this means that you are somewhere lost because the way you chose rebelled against God in your earthly life.
  • “Lost” is a place in eternity.
  • The angels that minister for Salvation won’t come to you, but what comes are the spirits that motivated you, that tempted you to rebel, compromise, and doubt God and His Word. They will take you and Hell opens her mouth to receive you.
  • So how you live in the preparation of the next body can be seen by you and others according to the Word of God. This is whether you are a regenerated or unregenerated soul!
  • So having on the right body for your soul’s destiny is so important!
  • The laws in the spirit realm are different than the laws in earthly realm that are still spirit.
  • I believe that when people say that they see demonic spirits they are seeing really where they are presently in their spirituality due to their state of belief. Because to see demonic spirits and activities and don’t have power to control them and to cast them out is unusual. These spirits, familiar spirits job is to keep you from getting saved and staying saved so that when it your time to transition from this world, it is their job to drag you into Hell because you don’t the right body, a new body to fight in that realm.
  • A new body is a glorified body of Light! When demons see this body, they flee from it.
  • A glorified body is what Adam originally had before he sinned against God.
  • Adam was a spirit being! He was created in the glorified nature of God. He had already put on Christ because he was created in Him. (Verse 45)
  • Glorified defined here as acknowledge and reveal the majesty and splendor of (God) by one’s actions; to ascribe, describe, and represent the nature of God in Spirit as admirable, especially unjustifiably.
  • The Light of God that shines in His people on earth today is that little light they sing about. Although, the Bible says, “let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify our Father which is in Heaven”, St Matthew 5:16.
  • When people see your good works, they will not and should not glorify you but the Father which is in Heaven. He is the one that has/is transformed/transforming you in this newness.
  • The glorified body covers all your parts, anything that would be shameful or has caused you shame. This also includes the nature of the past and its once deeds!
  • We get this glorified body and its preparations based upon how we are living life in the earth now. It starts in the earth realm qualifying you and making you eligible for the new body.
  • The Word teaches us that if your right hand offends you cut it off. It is better to enter Heaven with one hand then to let that hand that offends take you and your whole body to Hell.

St Matthew 5:29-30 29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast is from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

  • When we look at the members of the Body of Christ, we should follow this same process instead of being like “crabs in a bucket”.
  • Sin is pleasurable when you don’t have the thoughts of you dying or thoughts of your immortality.
  • Therefore, many believers, born again new creatures live from their past, its habits, practices, lust, and desires in their new present with Christ.
  • We abuse God’s grace because we know that if we confess our sins that He is faithful and just to forgive us, 1 John 1:9.
  • If we keep on doing something repeatedly, God is not going to believe that you are sorry because you are now willfully doing wrong. After a while your conscience becomes seared and your confession to God will mean nothing.
  • Our conscience is our God given moral conscious, which is soul, the moral part of God.
  • When your conscience is seared it is rendered insensitive, your conscience does not work properly in identifying right and wrong, as if you have some spiritual scar tissue that has dulled your sense of right and wrong. Just as cattle are branded with a branding iron and that spot branded has become numb to pain.
  • So, the heart of a person that has been desensitized to moral pains.
  • Cauterize defined here as to burn the skin or flesh of (a wound) with a heated instrument or caustic substance, typically to stop bleeding or prevent the wound from becoming infected.
  • Cauterization is a medical practice or technique of burning a part of a body to remove or close off a part of it. It destroys some tissue in an attempt to mitigate bleeding and damage, remove an undesired growth, or minimize other potential medical harm, such as infections when antibiotics are unavailable
  • Everybody is not going to make it into eternal Heaven, because they don’t have a mind to do so.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared (cauterize)with a hot iron;

  • Your confession must be backed up by actions.
  • Many in that day the Bible declares will say Lord did I not do this and that in your name. The Lord’s response to them will be “depart from Me your work was of iniquity”. You don’t have a relationship with Me. You did the Church thang through tradition and religion and never formed a relationship with Me. (St Matthew 7:21-23)
  • Your relationship with Me was when I told you to don’t do that, cut them off, stop relying on this and that; following the wrong people based upon a feeling; and doing things that would keep you from knowing Me. Jesus will have to say I know you not.
  • It is your sin that keeps you away from Christ Jesus!
  • Many say that they know the Lord but the Lord is saying “I don’t know you” and your fruit is not of Me.
  • The Lord must build a relationship with each of us individually and personally. The relationship with Him is what will get the things out of your life that was/is standing between you and Him.
  • Remember you kept choosing a man or woman; money; your Will; unforgiveness; transgressions; iniquity, the cares of this world, etc.
  • Christ must know you! Not through your possessions or stuff!
  • The day of your transitioning is going to catch many off guard, because they think that they have time to continue to sin.
  • Preaching, teaching, and ministering in the flesh to the flesh will only hurt if any until benediction.
  • Preaching, teaching, and ministering in the Spirit will hurt your feelings as the Spirit of God cut and burn the sin in that old nature that is in the flesh, but this is God’s method with a solution for your new life in Him.
  • Fleshly teaching, preaching, and ministering to the natural man will leave you cut and leaking with no healing and deliverance.
  • Spiritual immaturity will cause you not to grow spiritually as well as not be prepared to be eligible for a new body for soul, and it starts down here in the earth realm.
  • How do you expect to grow spiritually when you’ve be taught to hate and reject the Word and Will of God through tradition and religion and its practices?

Amen

Disclaimer in the Gospel of Jesus Christ in order to speak to

the Soul of man and bring him back to life:

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2022 Copy Right

The teachings here are for the soul of man.

The teachings here are for the awakening, the delivering, the experiencing, and the

winning of your soul. The teachings here are designed and equipped to usher you into the Kingdom of God as a spirit being encased in a body living in the earth.

The teachings here are about the life of the Kingdom, being a citizen of the Kingdom, and its benefits for the soul of the spirit man in you while in the earth.

The teachings here are designed and equipped with the message from the Heart of God that will guarantee you to hear the Father say well done, as well as causing you to grow spiritually into becoming a Son of God. The teachings here are from the Heart of God in and through His Word and His Son. The teachings here will cleanse your spirit, soul, and body and making the WHOLE man ready for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, who will then become your instructor, guide, leader, reprove, correct, rebuke, etc., and it comes from the Spirit of God’s Breath inspired through His Word.

When the Holy Ghost takes His abode in you by possessing and controlling you, He will do the teaching now.

The teachings here are designed and orchestrated to “usher” your soul into the Presence of God once you have reached the stage in spiritual growth to stand in the faith of Christ before a Holy God who will now speak to you Himself.

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.

Usher defined here to show or guide Soul to the mark of starting something new as a new creature in Christ; an assistant teacher anointed by the Spirit of God to assist in the ushering of Souls to the Kingdom of God; a person, in this case a leader or teacher who shows Souls to their seat in Christ for the Kingdom; a leader or teacher employed by the spirit of God to walk before the Soul that is being presented to the Spirit of God.

  • In all teachings faith is heard, demonstrated, lived, and is a lifestyle here in Personal Touch!
  • These teachings are a guarantee for you to become your authentic self in Christ.
  • You see we teach, preach, and minister through the Word of God what the Spirit of God allows us to see in Spirit; we then minister God’s Heart to you through His Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, and Revelation Knowledge.
  • Therefore, we don’t have to lay hands on you because the Word finds you, handles you, and your circumstances as it is preached and taught according to the Will of God.

Your Secret Self

When a soul’s heart is hearing in righteousness the devil cannot snatch you out or lead you out of the Church, you willingly go.

  • When a believer’s soul compromises the Word of God in their journey they will automatic drop fellowship with Personal Touch, the disciples, and myself; and will keep us at a long distance.
  • Here is a news flash! This is the same way you treat the Lord God when you rebel, reject,

and compromise His Word and you become a far off from Him and His Presence, though it may appear that you have left us.

  • Then you will begin to practice tradition and religion to try and stay afloat in and with a

familiar spirit of what and when you once experienced the enlightenment and tasted your Heavenly gift(s) and was named a partaker of the Holy Ghost (Hebrews 6:4).

  • The Holy Ghost, The Holy Spirit is available to all that are willingly and obedient to do the Will of God in the earth.
  • The Holy Ghost is compacted to impact your whole being so that the full Love of God to and for the spirit man in you is being indwelled and well taken care of.
  • The Word of God ONLY operates by the Spirit of God and functions by the faith of the Spirit of God.
  • The Word of God is Spirit and is the Spirit of God.
  • The Word of God will testify of Jesus Christ and will cause Him to become the supreme

object of your affections. St John 5:39 says that the scriptures will testify of Jesus when you search them.

Therefore, we must study to show ourselves approved of God, not man, but approved by God to be skilled and skillful in rightly dividing the Word of God in truth, not feelings, but in truth.

Affections of joy, desires that are His desires, respect, being in awe, love for one another, gratitude, and so much more.

When Christ becomes the object of your affections in the earth you will learn to submit and commit to the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth.

St John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

  • This is only done through the object of your affections and what they are set upon.
  • To be loved as the beloved of God is the love that God so loved man with.
  • Beloved defined here as dearly loved; very popular with or much used by a specified set

of people; a much-loved person.

St John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever

believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  • So defined here as to such a great extent; and for this reason; in the way described or

demonstrated; with the aim that; in order that; and then; as the next step.

  • Jesus is the ONLY demonstrator! His demonstration of love is our pattern to imitate and to follow.
  • What is it going to take in your journey of Salvation for you to reveal and surrender your whole self to the Will of God? This will begin the cleansing process for your soul’s return to the Father.
  • What is it that you do daily to keep your secret self in secret?
  • Is this why you don’t or won’t seek the Lord for His Holy Spirit? If so, please note that He already know your inward secrets.
  • We use distractions to keep us occupied and from knowing our true self.
  • We use people, social media, songs, music, etc. to keep us distracted so that we don’t hear our thoughts about ourselves that triggers the real you.
  • What is the secret(s) about yourself that keeps you walking as the Gentiles walk?

Ephesians 4:17-32 Read from the Bible

  • The Gentiles walked in the futility of their minds.
  • Futility defined here as the quality of being ineffective or useless; unimportance; done in vain (futile). Vanity, meaningless, worthless, pointless, useless, ineffective, hopeless.
  • The Gentiles were darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in their heart (the hardness of their heart).
  • In other words, some of the Gentiles walked in the flesh!
  • The hearing of the truth of Chris Jesus and His learned way teaches us to put off/take off the old man and his nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires and can only be renewed in the spirit of your minds, as you put on the new creation in you created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
  • Even today we see that many that say they are in Christ but have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality (a state of being sensual), greedy practices toward every kind of impurity.  Sensual defined here as pertaining to the body or the physical senses; also, fleshy; carnal; opposed to spiritual. This is not the way of Christ neither is it the way many have been taught the truth in Jesus Christ.
  • This is why it don’t pay to watch others or each other and don’t know the Spirit of the Word for yourself.
  • The scriptures here teach us that we should have a firm base for understanding how we are called to live in the light of our new life in Christ.
  • Even tradition and religion give a portrait that may not be holy, but it will give you a glimpse that will give you a thirst to inquire for more righteousness.
  • How should we walk in a manner that is worthy of the great calling in Christ individually and personally?
  • This means bearing with one another in love, patience, humility, and using our gifts of the Holy Spirit for building up one another in love.
  • The Gentiles have been grafted whereas we all have become one people, one nation whose God is the LORD.
  • Grafted defined here as in (botany) a shoot inserted into a tree or plant, so as to become a living part of it; something amalgamated with a foreign stock.
  • This “grafting in” does not give us the privilege to continue to walk half-heartedly in the sight of God after all that He has done through His Son Jesus.
  • In Christ we are no longer Gentiles, therefore we must cease walking and living like the Gentiles lived.
  • We can no longer live as the world is our minds and hearts, because we are no longer of the world.
  • There must be a disconnect between you and the world because your secret self will reveal itself.
  • Being united in Christ in one another is/should be our common goal as the members of the Body of Christ, and not being united around our own glory and our possessions that omits God.
  • Our common goal is coming into the unity of the faith in Christ and of the knowledge of Jesus Christ to the measure of striving for His perfect stature of the fullness Christ in you.
  • Being darkened in your understanding means that your heart is still a heart of stone, and you are still separated from God.
  • It is hard to comprehend the Word of God in darkness, when it is Light that must be understood in Spirit and in Truth.
  • Satan is darkness! He is the one that twist and contort the Word of God in your understanding to make you believe that your secrets are only yours; nobody knows what you are thinking or have been thinking; etc. But your attitude, behavior, and mannerism will always give you away.
  • Biblically ignorance is treated as a willful act of neglecting knowledge and truth.
  • I didn’t say it God said it in Hosea 4:6 when He said My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou has rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
  • Don’t think here that you can come and go with God as you please and how you please.
  • He is a God of His Word! He upholds His Word! When He says I will also reject you and forget your children He means this.

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love Me; and those that seek Me early shall find Me.

  • This is Wisdom talking, but God is Wisdom!
  • There will be few that will find the straight and narrow gate which leads to life because of their secret self.

St Matthew 7:13-14 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

  • It is the hardness of the heart that causes many to desire the ignorance of not possessing the knowledge of God.
  • Many have sealed their hearts away perceiving the love of God through Christ Jesus, therefore their minds cannot grasp the truth of God.
  • So they put on a form of godliness through their feelings and still get lost in the process of spirituality.

Amen

Soul PrayingIt’s the Soul of the spirit Man that prays to His Father

Apostle Tracey Robinson 2022 All Rights Reserved

  • Prayer is our spiritual communication to our Spiritual Father which art in Heaven.
  • Prayer is the most talked about and the most common practice of all Christians, but yet lest in activity involved in because of the lack of results.
  • It is easy to always say “we are praying for you” or “I will pray for you” but is lest activity they are involved in because of a lack of results.
  • Prayer is not an option for us, we are commanded to pray. Jesus never said, “if you pray” He said “when you pray”, which means God expects you to pray if you claim to be a born again new creature (a believer). (St Matthew 6:5-6)
  • Praying from your soul is who Jesus was referring to when He said, “Man ought to always pray, pray without ceasing”. He was referring to the spirit of Man! That part that God created in His own image, after their likeness.
  • Praying from your soul is spiritual! Not carnal through the flesh.
  • Language is the key to unity and communication.
  • Language is the most important thing in a country and in a culture.
  • Your soul will need a language to be in unity and communication with God the Father.
  • Prayer is not an automatic thing to do! Prayer is not just talking to God! If so, everyone would be talking to Him and getting results.
  • Just because you can talk a lot, your words are eloquent in speech, or you can pray a long time because of practice does not mean you will be heard.
  • Jesus told the Pharisees in St Matthew 6:7-8 you think that you will be heard because of your much speaking, your long drawn out and use of vain repetitious words, quoting all these laws to God in their deep ritualistic words and complicated languages in religious words being addressed to God.
  • The principle of prayer must be learned! It must be taught by the Holy Spirit using the Word of God to your soul so that soul can pray; so that we can have access to Heaven; to learn how to control what happens on the earth by pulling down what’s going on in Heaven to earth; and to make an effective impact from Heavens view with it..

St Luke 18:1 And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.

  • Jesus uses a parable to explain the need for the spirit man in you to always pray without ceasing and not to faint. In other words, wait on the Spirit of God to answer you and don’t lose your hope in waiting for Him to response.
  • Praying from your soul and its emotions without the 5-senses of your flesh and its knowledge of good and evil is a spiritual process that will cause you to become the spirit being that you are, communicating with the Bishop of your soul which will guarantee a spiritual response to you from our Spiritual God. It’s a win, win both ways!
  • When we pray amiss, that is praying out of the Will of God, praying inappropriately, praying out of place, or not quite right we are praying then our lower nature which is the flesh, which is carnal and worldly.
  • God does not hear nor respond to the flesh except it is surrendering and conforming to His Will from its deception and the deceiving of your soul through its influence to reject Him and His Will.
  • Your soul once awaken by the heard Word of God knows how to pray in and from a spirit of “reverence” to God. Your prayers will get answered because you are praying in the Spirit without the Will of your flesh involved.
  • Reverence is to have a deep respect for God; to regard and treat Him with deep respect.
  • Flesh cannot enter into the presence of a Holy and Righteous God. Why, because it is an enemy to God and toward God; it’s deceptive, carnal, and worldly.
  • Soul once awaken and is in obedience to the Will of God prays from a memory of what the Holy Spirit has said and will bring back to his remembrance.
  • Soul once awaken will only pray to his Creator, his Father.
  • The Book of Psalm is a reflection of a wide variety of feelings, emotions, attitudes, and interest of individual experiences, with a genuine interest in establishing worship to our Father God that only comes from their soul and its desires for the Father.
  • These Psalmists express their need, yearning, longings, and desires from their “inner man” called soul.
  • Once soul has been awaken to the Will of God through the heard Word of God it is God that puts desires in your (his) heart when soul delights himself in God.
  • When the Spirit of God is in total control over your surrendered soul our desires are only His desires, because God already know your earthly need before you even ask Him; but your spiritual need is God’s greatest concern.

3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

  • Health and prosperity are a promise to those that are spiritually growing in Christ.
  • There is a difference between feelings and emotions: Feelings are experienced consciously through the 5-senses and its knowledge of good and evil. Emotions are manifest either consciously or subconsciously.
  • The feelings of the flesh triggers the emotions of the soul to influence them through the conscious mind by repeating what it hears in the knowledge of good and evil then deposit or download it into your subconscious mind which is the heart of the soul (spirit man).
  • A good example is our emotions are like the engine of a car; our feelings are the frame or body of the car. To tune up your care you won’t skip over the engine, right? Well the same goes for our emotions, which give us a more accurate diagnosis of how we are doing in each moment.
  • Emotions are the raw data of a reaction to your present reality, whereas feelings are diluted from your past, its stories, and fears that were created in the heart from being repetitiously heard then downloaded in your heart.

REMEMBER

  • When your flesh is dominant (has dominion that is) over your soul, your soul will take what the body (the flesh) hears, sees, taste, feeling, and touch from your senses to deposit it into your soul. Your soul will take what the body has deposited and deposit it into your spirit. In this there is no Holy Spirit dwelling in your spirit!
  • When the Holy Spirit is dominant over your soul He has possession and control over your spirit; He will deposit His righteousness, holiness, sanctification, and deliverance in your soul through the heard Word of God. Once the spirit takes back His dominion over your whole self, your body (the flesh) is subject to the Will of the Spirit of God; the flesh will be mortified to be crucified.
  • The dominion of the Holy Spirit in control over your whole being will crucify the flesh and its senses causing it to submit to the Will of God and no longer to what it heard, sees, smell, taste, and touch.

REMEMBER:

  • Your subconscious mind is the heart of the soul of man. This is the “seat of control” for the life of soul.
  • The conscious mind feeds the subconscious mind information. The more your conscious mind hears it feeds it to the subconscious mind. We must learn to take control of our conscious mind.
  • You then become what you have heard! Proverbs 23:7 For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
  • Jesus said for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, St Matthew 12:34

REMEMBER:

  • It is the Spirit of God that gives all new creatures in Him a new heart and a new spirit found in Ezekiel 36:26-27
  • When we are born again we must be regenerated and it is God who will give you a new heart and a new spirit; and He will take away the stony heart of our old nature and give us a heart of flesh, which is of the new nature.
  • Then He will “put” His Spirit in you that will cause your soul to walk in His statutes, keep His judgments, and do them.
  • This is how we will learn to walk in the Spirit, by the Spirit, and after the Spirit.
  • So when souls come together in the unity of faith in Christ Jesus and in one heart they will find the Spirit of God’s presence because of the unity and oneness in faith.
  • The Spirit of the Lord God shows up when there is obedience in one accord. His holiness won’t allow Him to show up when the mind of all hearts are not one.
  • Learning to pray from your soul in such a manner that will destroy what was put in order as a tradition and ritual and not as an activity that will impact this world from a Kingdom standard.
  • Learning to pray from your soul’s view will give you access using the keys of the Kingdom to enter into the Kingdom country.
  • Learning to pray from your soul’s view as the Church will impact this earth by bringing Heavens influence to the earth.
  • This is the kind of power and authority through Jesus that God gave to the Church through the keys of Heaven.

St Matthew 18:18-20

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

  • When there is unity in prayer that is individual or corporate with the Kingdom of Heaven on your behalf as a representative of Heaven prayers are promised to be answered.
  • When we ask in unity we must ask from Heaven’s view: by declaring and forbidding that which is improper and unlawful in earth that which is already forbidden in Heaven; and whatever we permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in Heaven.
  • It is through the Holy Spirit that soul is knowledgeable in knowing what is already improper and unlawful in earth from Heavens standards.
  • It is through the Holy Spirit that soul is knowledgeable in knowing what to permit and declare as being proper and lawful on the earth and must already be permitted in Heaven.
  • Spiritually soul will never pray amiss, repetitious, and vain prayers to the Father because he knows what the Father’s pleasure is.
  • We as new creatures in Christ must unlearn from the ways of tradition and religion so our soul can take its abode in Christ and do the Will of the Father.
  • We must first begin by coming to the sanctuary with the intents of God in our hearts and toward one another, and not the motives of our flesh and its comfort.
  • We must come to the understanding as a new creature that our soul must be “spiritually afflicted”.
  • By going through the processing of these “afflictions of being spiritually refined” that will incorporate individual and corporate test, trials, and tribulations for the new life in Christ that will make, mold, and transform your soul into conforming to become a Son, just like the Son of God.

 2 Corinthians 4:16-17

16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

  • We must be refined by going on through the processing of God’s plan of Salvation for soul.
  • Refining is the process of purification for the soul to cleanse and remove all the impurities of our old nature (old man) in order to improve and perfect the new man (new creature) in Christ in you.

Amen

“It is well with my soul”


Apostle Tracey Robinson 2022 All Rights Reserved

• Believers today are more concerned about Revelation, the end times; Jesus’ return; the signs of the times that are reflecting His return; and are not concerned about the daily status of their soul. Why is that?
• Believers today are so concerned about the different translations of the Word of God in its originality and meanings, but it does not give your soul its spirituality from just knowing the definitions of the different translations.
• Believers today are so distracted by the cares of this world, when they should be casting all their cares upon the Lord because your soul’s adversary which is the devil like a roaring lion is walking about seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:7)
• Your soul’s adversary is seeking those who are resisting and steadfast in the faith of the knowledge of God in Christ, knowing that the same identical sufferings are appointed to the whole body of Christ throughout the world. (1 Peter 5:8-9)
• So fret not, it’s not just happening to you and North Carolina only! The devil is busy all over the world determined to move you and I that are in the Body of Christ; determined to keep you and I twisted in knowing the KNOWLEDGE of God, which is our weapon of power and authority.

2 Thessalonians 5:23-24 KJV Amplified 23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through (separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God); and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete (and found) blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
24 Faithful is He Who is calling you (to Himself) and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it (fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you).

• Hallowing us means to make us holy; consecrate us for His pleasure and usage; to sanctify us; to bless us; to honor us as being His product of Holiness.
• ONLY the Spirit of God can make you holy, perfect, entire, and wanting nothing outside of Him.
• The Spirit of God is the ONLY Source for our being that will preserve us for Himself, for His calling and for His purpose in earth.

• Man is a trinity. The state of being three: spirit, soul, and body.
• The human soul and spirit are not identical, and they are divisible.

Hebrews 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

• The Word of God is a spiritual weapon to and for those that use it in Spirit and in Truth.
• Man is spirit. He is capable of being God consciousness and in communication with God. This is the part of man that knows in Spirit and in Truth.
• Man is soul. He is mind, Will, and emotions. He has self-consciousness.

Psalm 13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

• This is soul’s prayer! This is how your soul will pray to the Father; how he will communicate from his spirituality without the flesh, its knowledge of good and evil taught through the educational systems of man in his independence of God.
• Man is human encased in a human body. He operates through his senses and is world-consciousness.
• For the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolish to him. He cannot know them because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14).
• For what man knows without the Holy Spirit are the things of man, except the spirit of man. (1 Corinthians 2:11).
• Why do you think your human reasoning show up and displays itself when the Spirit of the Word presents itself to you to accept or reject?
• Human reasoning is a characteristic of your human intellect whereas we are able to think intuitively (intuitive is based upon what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning; innate; inborn) without restraint. So when the Word of God is heard we tend to take it and process it through reasoning (thinking about something in a logical, sensible way; finding an answer to your problem by considering various possible solutions) in order to gain further understanding.
• This seems to be a long drawn out process to believe in the Word of God instead of just believing it by faith. Faith is spiritual!
• In theology, reason, as distinguished from faith, is the human intelligence exercised upon religious truth whether by way of discovery or by way of explanation.
• When your soul is awakened to being transformed back into being in right standing with God, not your body but your soul, it doesn’t matter what goes on in this world; what comes and what goes; who is saying this or that; or what is being paid or not being paid because my soul is back with the Father as a Son.
• “It is well with my soul”
• We must learn to get to a point of being so secured in our Salvation that our soul will sing “it is well, it is well, it is well with my soul”.
• What does it mean to say it is well with my soul? When we are able to say that “everything” in every aspect of my life is well, though there are storms brewing, struggles to go through, tragedies to overcome, and I live in a world that has no future.
• But with faith, trust, confidence, reliance, and assurance in a loving, faithful, and trustworthy God and His Divine help, aid, assistance, and support, I can truly say it is well with my soul. That is my life in this earth in my present state.
• God only gives His Holy Spirit to those that will obey Him willingly, and will be His witnesses in testimony on this earth through His Son Jesus.
• It is well with my soul! All is well!
• If the plan of Salvation was designed by man it would fail and you can see that now today through the many forms of godliness that man portrays, but they deny the actual power of God’s ability to transform their soul back into reconciliation with Him.
• The plan of Salvation is God’s design for the soul of man and it has not in times past and will not fail today.
• Salvation received is not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that you might know the things that are spiritual and freely given to us of God. (1 Corinthians 2:12).
• The plan of Salvation with tradition and religion is designed by the Will of man and his unwillingness to obey the total Will of God through Christ.
• There is a way that seems right to man, but his end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12.
• Proverbs 19:21 says there are many plans (devices) in the heart of man; but it’s the Lord’s purpose that will stand for him.
• In Acts 5:33-39 Gamaliel, a Pharisee, in the Sanhedrin council, a doctor of the law who had in reputation among the people a good name. Gamaliel commanded that space be put between them and the Apostles for a while, while he addressed the council to take care of what they propose to do concerning the Apostles.
• In other short words, Gamaliel had to give the council a couple of examples of what is made of man without God will fail, but what is born of God will cause man to be destroyed for touching and plotting to do harm to the anointed of God.
• Gamaliel’s advice to the council was to take heed and to be careful how they handled these Apostles that were filled with the Spirit of God.
• He went on to give them a couple of examples in times past of how Theudas, asserted himself as being a person of importance, boasters rose up with him and killed along with 400 other men, and all who had listened to him were scattered and brought to nothing.
• Gamaliel also told them about Judas the Galilean, who led an uprising during the time of taxing, and drew away many people with him; he also perished and many of those that obeyed him were scattered.
• Gamaliel told the council in the present case of the Apostles refrain and withdraw from these men and leave them alone, for if their doctrine or purpose is of human origin, it will fail, be overthrown and come to nothing: but if it is of God, you will not be able to stop them, overthrow them, or destroy them because you will be found fighting against God!
• Sin is an enemy of God and to God!
• All unrighteousness is sin!
• Sin is of the devil and is God’s enemy.
• Sin is of the devil and is designed to twist the Word of God to cause the soul of man to reject the original Will of God.
• God’s plan of Salvation through His Son Jesus will never fail!
• The Apostle’s doctrine is what we must continue steadfast in, fellowship in, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:42)
• The Apostle’s doctrine is what they taught by the authority of Christ through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
• The Church is a spiritual temple that is built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, with Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief corner stone. (Ephesians 2:20)
• In whom all the building fitly framed together grow to an holy temple in the Lord: in whom you are also built together for a habitation of God through His Spirit. (Ephesians 2:21-22).
• Every born again, new creature has been given an outlet (an exit; a way of escape) while learning to live in this earth from within.
• Living from within is not concerned with the human inventions of man’s wicked imagination of his heart.
• Everything man’s humanism suffers from is from what he has created without the Spirit of God. Therefore the earth is a product of what we’ve allowed to happen without the Spirit of God.
• So we cannot blame God for the poverty, selfishness, greed, covetness, and jealousy that has stemmed from the imagination of man’s heart in wickedness, when in fact God had already declared it and prophesied it in the beginning.
• In Genesis 6:5 God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
• God is a Spirit and He will not violate His own Word and come into the earth without a physical body that is surrendered to His Will.
• His law for earth is that any spirit being without a body is illegal on earth.
• This is why He had to become flesh to legally enter into the earth realm through Jesus. Jesus came to earth to make God legal on earth.
• It is well with your soul when your soul has been awakened to and delighting in the Will of God, and in the knowledge of Him in you in His purpose in earth.
• When we as new creatures are being afflicted to be spiritually refined, purified, improved in our souls we will be able to say it is well with my soul.
• One of the hardest things about our light afflictions is remembering the suffering, the sacrifices, the test, trials, and tribulations and never learning and understanding its need for your soul’s refining.
• This world and its cares are designed to make your souls afflictions to appear as nothing happening or could happen to change your circumstances, or heal your body, or cause your mindset to change and to cause you to not remember the faithfulness of God and His word.
• God is faithful to whosoever Will, will come to Him through His Son Jesus.
• Jesus is the pattern for the soul of man’s return home; and it is the Word of God through Christ that knits the pattern of your journey back home to the Father.

What is going on in these buildings called sanctuaries, churches, and or House of Prayers? Naturally and Spiritually


Apostle Tracey Robinson 2022 All Rights Reserved

• We are calling it everything the Word of God calls it or mentions it to be, but are we really functioning and operating in His manner?
• Every sanctuary, Church, or House of Prayer is best known for what? Leaders, what is your sanctuary known for?

St John 6:44 says 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.

• What is it that draws you/believers/people to the House of Prayer? Is it your need for spirituality or your need for a change in your natural humanism that drives you there? Is it the Word of God? Is it the soundness of the Word of God in its doctrine? Or is it the singing, liturgical dancing, or the famous holy dance? Is it the authentic praise and worship? Is it the fables, storytelling, or hypotheticals of what would Jesus do (WWJD) in that ministry?
• Who are you drawn to in the House of Prayer, Church, or sanctuary? Why are you being drawn into the House of Prayer? Is it to be renewed, refreshed, or revived from the cares and bondages of this world that we willingly incorporate ourselves with; from your ownership of worldly possessions; as an entrepreneur, employer or employee, a student, a graduate, or from just being on the systems of this world? Why do you come to the sanctuary or the Church building?
• Entertainment has become greater than the Word of God in its own dwelling! It is a form of godliness created through tradition, religion, and compromise and has been given precedence over the Gospel of the Kingdom and Jesus’ purpose for God.
• Spirits of worldliness and carnality have crept into these buildings disguised as spiritual rappers, spiritual comedians with spiritual comedy shows, mime dancers, club lights that flicker and race across the ceilings and walls; along with other types of hypes and adorning for the congregations “feelings” to be aroused and not their spirituality awakened.
• Competition of the ministries is at an all-time high! What spirit are you operating in when competing with others in the Body of Christ? Do you know what member of the Body of Christ you are? If so, do you know your function in His Body to the other members of His Body?
• Seducing spirits are lying spirits that are designed to dominate or have control over people by reversing the truth to make it false.
• Leaders that are competing in ministry have a seducing spirit! This is not soul winning, don’t get it twisted!
• Ministries are racing for membership through false advertisement and compromise; no more winning souls to convert them for the Kingdom, but just for greed and popularity.
• Ministries are competing with each other so on what they say the Lord is saying so they prophesy lies in what they say God has told them, and say they are doing it for the Kingdom in order to recruit members. Today’s ministries don’t want disciples, but members only!
• Prophecy the number one soul getter! Let me spiritually discern in you what I see I need from you in MY ministry. Prophecy has taken over the Word of God and His plan and purpose for many.
• In our building all we do is prophesy to the same people every week until we can control them through what I say I see the Lord is doing in you through what I need. Lord have mercy!
• No teachings and fellowship in the Word of God just singing, dancing, and prophesying. Then we advertise COME to our ministry where the Lord is moving! He is blessing!

St Matthew 7:21-23 21 Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the Will of my Father which is in Heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.

• Sin with compromise will cause you to be separated from the Lord and for His profession of you and the work you did will be disowned.
• God’s Will must be done God’s Way!

• Hirelings that have come in the other way other than through the door of Jesus have filtered the sanctuaries with the worldliness of the flesh and the devil. (St John 10:1-14). Are you a hireling?
• Hireling is a person that works purely for material rewards.
• Hirelings perceive the Gospel of Christ Jesus as being menial work; not requiring much skill and lacking prestige.
• Satan has placed hirelings at and in the outer courts.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

• This is why we as true believers don’t have to spend time ridiculing others because the Word of God has it time and place of recompense for all hirelings, workers of iniquity, people that wrongfully misuse you, etc. because the Word of God will not be mocked. (Galatians 6:7-9)
• Knowledge obtained from the letter and not by the Spirit. Education is great to have according to mankind, but when it comes to God and His teachings you must be unlearned from what you know and have achieved from and in the knowledge of good and evil.
• In God’s plan of Salvation, God chooses what part or which parts of your learned experiences are needful and beneficial for His glory, honor, and pleasures as you represent Him in the earth.
• Knowledge without love puffs up! (1 Corinthians 8:1-3).
• Measure your knowledge with or against your love for God, His people, and all mankind.
• Can your knowledge be compromised? Is it being used to compromise God’s Will?
• Terminology is a great problem as well, simply because we reject and refuse to change from our familiar way of doing and saying.
• Terminology means expressions; words; language; the body of terms used with a particular technical application in a subject of study, profession, etc.
• Always remember words carry spirits; they carry power and authority or weakness, fear, etc.
• How we express our known thoughts and or feelings in words will reveal your inward strength.
• A change in your terminology will come with a change in your mindset toward the Spirit of God and His Will.
• How you think from the thoughts that are in your heart will determine the strength of your belief.

The difference between a sanctuary and the Church
• By definition a sanctuary is a place; a building or room used for religious purpose such as worship; a place for spiritual indwelling; a place that provides safety and protection; the protection from danger or a difficult situation; a place of refuge or rest; a place of peace or the holiest part of a temple or a church.
• An example of a sanctuary is a church or temple; your home if you will, providing that Christ is the foundation of that spiritual temple.

• By definition the Church is according to Webster, Oxford, and them is a building used for public Christian worship. This is a natural meaning for the natural man!
• Here the Church is compared to a natural building in order to show the likeness in the natural to its spiritual origin.

Ephesians 2:21-22 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, and holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:10-11 10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

• By spiritual definition of the true Church, the true Church is spiritual; it is the spiritual Body of Christ Jesus serving as a spiritual temple in earth through every born again new creature; founded upon the revelation revealed by faith to the disciple Peter in St Matthew 16:18-19; a body of unified believers in the unity of faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, and have become partakers of the Divine nature and life of Christ Jesus to a perfect man in the measure of His full stature for the habitation of God through the Spirit. This is being like Christ!
• The true spiritual Church is God’s administrative agency in earth.
• The spiritual Church is called Ecclesia (Ekklesia) which means “ek” = out of, “kaleo” = to call”, an assembly of called-out ones.
• Israel in the land is never called a church, but in the wilderness Israel was a true church, a called out assembly. (Acts 7:38)
• The true Church is composed of the whole number of regenerate persons (new creatures), united together and to Christ by the baptism with the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:12-13); the true Church is the Body of Christ of which He is the Head (Ephesians 2:21-22); the true Church is a holy temple for the habitation of the Spirit of God; the true Church is one flesh with Christ (Ephesians 4:30-31); and espoused to Him as a chaste virgin to one husband (2 Corinthians 11:2-4).

• The true Church in the earth is built upon the doctrine of the Apostles and Prophets with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone of its foundation. (Ephesians 2:20), which makes us fellow citizens with the Saints, and of the Household of God (The Kingdom of Heaven), (Ephesians 2:19).
• I am/we are no longer strangers and foreigners to God and His Kingdom. We are kingdom citizens if we are “in” Christ!
• It is by one Spirit whereby we are all baptized into one body (Christ’s Body). It does not matter whether we are Jew or Gentile; black or Caucasian or any other complexion; whether we be bond or free, we all have been made to drink into one Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:13)
• Every born again believer, new creature is a member of Christ’s Body and we all have a definite ministry. (1 Corinthians 12:12)
• Your foundation must be Jesus!
• You must seek God, ask God, and wait for His response to endow you with His Spirit because if you don’t have His Spirit you are not His.
• If you are not filled with the Holy Spirit you are not the Lord’s and you are struggling trying to do the Will of God in your flesh and with the flesh of others.

Romans 8:9-10 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His, 10 And if Christ be in you the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

• Leaders must be mindful how you build upon the foundation of Christ Jesus which has already been laid for you and I to continue to erect on the spiritual temple of the Body of Christ.
• Make sure that your truth is His Truth; make sure that your detours and by-passes are His spiritual detours and by-passes in revelation knowledge and not your seminary knowledge speaking.
• Make sure that your study is in the knowledge of God’s Heart and has been approved by the Spirit of God before feeding it to His flock.
• The flesh, your flesh is not the confirmation, nor is it the approving authority of God’s word.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.

• God’s approval to study, is approved by God from your successful completion in your test and trials passed, not failed. Don’t try to study the Word of God from a failed viewpoint because Satan will surely deceive you there then incorporate his methods of passing by compromising.
• Not being ashamed of your afflictions from being spiritually refined to do the Will of God His Way, not yours incorporated with tradition and religion.
• Rightfully handling and skillfully teaching the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth. Why, because I have met the prescribed method of God’s testing of His Word in me to be able to handle God’s business just like Jesus would do.
• Because through my spiritual refining I’ve learned to avoid all empty vain, useless, and idle talk that will lead souls to include mine, whether being converted or in just fellowship into more and more ungodliness.

Jesus purification of the spiritual Temple of God, the Church
• Does God want us to use the House of Prayer, His Spiritual habitation as a place of vending to buy and sell in order to raise money, to promote carnal and worldly procedures to raise money, awareness, and adding more to the ungodliness to the soul of man?
• Before you answer, listen to what the Word has given us in example please.

St Matthew 21:12-14 (reference Isaiah 56:7)
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the House of Prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and He healed them.

• Jesus cleaned up the House then demonstrated what the purpose and use of the House should be.

Psalms 27:4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the House of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His Temple.

• Psalm 27:4 brings us back to the natural place called the sanctuary, but to the heart of the reason for the House of Prayer. A place that will give us a spiritual place of refuge and rest for our spirituality (souls); a place where we all can come in the unity of faith to “sense” the presence of the Holiness of our Father, along with His peace and divine protection as one in faith.
• A place to come to release our “authentic self”, as being a spirit being that possess a soul, encased in a human body, having human experiences while yearning for a spiritual place to be revive.
• A place where we all will meet with the Spirit of God, Our Father to be “refueled”, “replenished”, “renewed”, “made free” again from the bondage set through the cares of the world, the flesh, and the devil; etc.
• This is the place that souls pant for, thirst for, long for on a daily basis!
• We as called out leaders should have a place that has been set up and approved by the Spirit of God; a place where He will dwell and meet those that will enter into His Gates with thanksgiving and into His Courts with praise. (Psalms 100:4)
• The sanctuary, the Church, or the House of Prayer is His Spiritual Chamber.

Amen

Are you “fit” for the Gospel of Christ Jesus? Or are you just a “half-hearted” follower?

Apostle Tracey Robinson 2022 All Rights Reserved

St Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.

• Fit means of a suitable quality, standard, or type to meet the required purpose; join or cause to join together to form a whole; to be in agreement or harmony with; match; (of an attribute, qualification, or skill) make (someone) suitable to fulfill a particular role or undertake a particular task; suitable and correct according to accepted social standards; having the requisite qualities or skills to undertake something competently.
• “Put his hand to the plough is as to touch” the Gospel in heart means: to touch the Gospel of Christ Jesus in heart and to hold fast to it by faith through the “whirlwind” of changes that you will be required to go through to be spiritually refined for His purpose.
• “Is fit for the Kingdom of God”. The Kingdom of God is spiritual! The Gospel is the Kingdom of God.
• Jesus’ first announcement was not to introduce a religion with denominations, but He introduced a kingdom. (St Matthew 4:17, St Luke 4:43).
• Jesus was sent to preach the Kingdom of God which is the ruler-ship of God. And it is the Father’s good pleasure to give to us the Kingdom.
• The Church is not the Kingdom, it represents the Kingdom.
• The Church, not the building, it is to represent the Heavenly government and its governing authority.
• Religion is so strong in its traditions and rituals that it fights the Kingdom.
• Religion actually replaces the truth with its traditions. Jesus told them that they have made the traditions of men more important than the commandments of God. This why tradition fights the Kingdom!
• True and undefiled religion in the sight of God is found in James 1:27. It says pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
• To be fit for the Kingdom of God is to grow through the spiritually refined processing designed through your persecutions, sufferings, sacrifices, etc.
• These are the very things that multiply the Kingdom in the earth through you! This is why God allows persecution!
• Religion makes you comfortable in your discomfort, and religion cannot change you.
• The Kingdom in you must be tested to prove it authenticity in you. NO CLAIM should be without test!!!
St Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

• Let’s go back now and read the other verses St Luke 9:56-61 to clearly understand why Jesus said what He said in verse 62.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whitersoever thou goest.
58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
59 And He said unto another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
• Listen at the prophecy here as Jesus spoke to him saying, “Follow Me”.
60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
• Listen to the condition of that prophecy! Your father is dead; let the dead bury their dead.
61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

• Some of us are still bidding our unsaved, lukewarm relatives farewell which is the reason we cannot serve the Lord whole-heartedly in Spirit and in Truth.
• We tend to have many excuses when the call to follow Christ Jesus through God’s plan of Salvation is heard.

Romans 8:29-30 says that for whom God did foreknow (aware of you before you were born), He also predestinate (determined in advance by the divine Will of God) to be conformed (to comply with and to God’s rules, standards, and laws) to the image of His Son, that he might be the first born among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called (we’ve been summoned by God through His spiritual attraction and attention): and whom He called, them He also justified (declared and made righteous in God’s sight) : and whom He justified, them He also glorified (represented in such a way to appear as ordinary, but more elevated and special and made glorious in Him).

• So what really is the problem of the called out ones that have been fitted for the Gospel of Christ Jesus?
• You’ve been equipped, prepared, and made ready for this course in life.

• Let’s back up again to the verses 49-55 above verse 56 where Jesus had to rebuke James and John because of the spirit of vindictiveness that was “in them”.
• Rebuke means to express sharp disapproval or criticism of (someone) because of their behavior or actions.
• Vindictive means having or showing a strong or unreasoning desire for revenge.
• The reason for mentioning these two words is so the believers should know that if Jesus didn’t call the disciples into a separate room to correct and reprove them, or wait until all the crowd had died down and left, why should we as leaders do so?
• Why do we as new creatures growing in Christ, will be rebuked at some time or another, take it as being “church hurt” when it is truth to correct and reprove your soul? I’m just saying!
• When Jesus heard and discerned that spirit He immediately rebuked it.
• So if Jesus rebuked openly why shouldn’t we as leaders rebuke openly?

Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.

• What excuse(s) do you use daily to suppress the urge and desires of the Spirit of God in and over your life?
• What do you say to God from your heart as the reason you cannot or will not fulfill His desired purposed in you?
• So based upon the definition of “fit”, when God calls you through His spiritual attraction for you through His Son Jesus, you are called because you are: suitable; competent; able; capable; qualify; make ready; attached; united; connected; good looking; satisfactory; and in good shape (please don’t take this as being personal and physical, but is spiritual).
• Are you really fit for the Gospel of Christ Jesus? If so, are you upholding its Will, Way, and Standards?
• Being conditioned for the Gospel is a lifelong process for soul that will take all the years of your life remaining, for your soul to be converted to the transforming and conforming power of the Word of God that is designed to take you back to your spiritual originality.
• Out of all of your life’s rehearsal that has been given to us all on a daily basis is designed to condition you/us to be fit for the Gospel of Christ Jesus and not be a half-hearted member or follower.
• Satan’s job through his many characters is to kill, steal, and destroy your soul as the devil, your adversary, the destroyer, the prince of this world, serpent, the tempter, and the wicked one will “tempt” you to test you, to see whether your commitment to God and your resolve (to decide firmly on a course of action in your new life) to your new life are intact and strong in the Christ.
• And the only key to whipping the devil and defeating him is to “Submit you your whole self to God”. (James 4:7)
• The more truth that Jesus leads you into, the less Satan has control over you.
• The less you know in knowledge and in truth, the more control Satan has over you.
• The people or leaders that are preaching and teaching what they understand in their own independence and imitation from others, and not in Spirit and in Truth gives Satan power over your soul.
• Satan’s strength and power over souls is fueled by the ignorance in their lives.
• The only power that he has is your ignorance (lack of knowledge and information), which stems from your rebelling and rejection of Truth and doing it your way and how you feel.

Amen

The Kingdom of God is in the Heart Apostle Tracey Robinson 2022 All Rights Reserved

• Jesus the Christ came to bring a kingdom to earth and not a religion.
• Mankind in his independence from God has developed a religion that is not compatible to the Kingdom of God.
• Jesus the Christ brought a government to earth that has the Laws of God incorporated that would come to overthrow, possess, and control all other governmental laws and influences created by the physical (natural) man and his shallow belief.
• God gave Adam kingdom authority over the earth, but when Adam rebelled (disobeyed) against God’s command Adam lost the kingdom.
• The fall of Adam caused the departure of the Holy Spirit to leave from the spirit of man. Therefore man lost the kingdom of Heaven influence over the earth.
• Adam didn’t lose Heaven, but he lost earth and dominion over it.
• Dominion defined here as the power of governing and controlling all earth; power to direct, control, use, and dispose of as it pleases the Lord God; territory under a government within the authority of the Lord God.
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

• We walk by the contents of what is in our heart (which is the center of life) whether our heart is regenerated or un-regenerated. And only God can renew the heart of man!
• Jesus said in St Matthew 15:18-20 that those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart and they are what defile man; for out of the heart proceeds evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blashphemies: these are the things that defile man.
• The Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness are not sharing your heart!
• Regenerate defined here as born anew; reproduced; renovated in heart; changed from a natural state to a spiritual state.
• Regenerate is to renew the heart by a change of affections; to change the heart and affections from natural enmity to the spiritual love of God.

Colossians 3:1-3 1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

• Spiritually, this means that the Spirit of God will bring the new creature in you to new life, a life that is from your previous state of life that once separated you from God and made you subject to the decay of death.
• The name of Jesus changed your journey in life and its courses (the route or direction you followed in and through your sin nature) by calling His name and accepting His Will.
• Affection defined here not as just a kind feeling or emotion, but as a disposition or state of mind that is often associated with a type of love. Love is not a feeling! Love is a law!
• Affection is a soulish emotion that stems through your sense of touch.
• Change of affections naturally refers to the natural love (lust) that members of the same family have for each other. The Bible calls it flesh and blood!
• Change of affections spiritually is the love called out of one’s regenerated heart by the object loved, the love that will impel one to sacrifice his own interests for the benefits of the person loved. This is the love of Christ!

Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.
1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

• Regeneration is God’s plan of Salvation designed through His Son Jesus to awaken the soul of every believer, by causing them to become spiritually alive, as a result of faith in Christ Jesus and making us His children.
• Being regenerated, spirit is our nature when we receive our new birth (St John 3:5-6) that which makes us partakers of the Divine nature of Christ.

Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
St Luke 8:15 (the parable of the sower) talks about how only the receptive hearer’s hearts are renewed; and the Word of God is kept in it; and it is fruitful. This is the heart that produces fruit! But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the Word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

• The Word of God in your heart is what will produce fruit; fruit that is pleasing to the Spirit of God and in accordance to His Will in earth.
• Unregenerate defined here as not spiritually reborn, converted, or reformed; not renewed in heart; unreconciled to God; born as man in flesh with the nature of the flesh, that which makes man blind to spiritual truth.
• There is no good in the flesh or about the flesh (Romans 7:18 for I know that in me (that is in my flesh) dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not).
• There is no profit in the flesh (St John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life).
• There is no confidence in the flesh (Philippians 3:3 for we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.)
• There are no provisions in the flesh (Romans 13:14 but you put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provisions for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof (of the thing just mentioned).
• What is in your un-regenerated heart is the enmity against God, carnality of this world, the love of the world, the things of the world, the cares of the world, the imitation of the world and its worldliness through the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, the feelings of the world, and so on, because the nature of the flesh generates these things.

Romans 12:1-2 1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. This is your responsibility, not Gods! 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, Will of God. You cannot be transformed as a new creature in Christ with the conformity of the world on your outward man!

• A person that lives for the flesh is living a negative lie and calling it life.
• The Kingdom of God is in your heart, not in the lust of your eyes.
• The Kingdom of God is founded and built in the heart of man, not in and through the lust of the flesh that which appeals to the lower appetite of the old nature that tempts us all to indulge in sinful ways.
• The Kingdom is in the new heart given by God and is equipped and incorporated with the Kingdom of Heaven and it’s standards, laws, and statutes; and it comes with a new spirit, which is the Holy Spirit to guide, lead, and instruct you therein (inwardly, within, internally).
• The Kingdom of God and all its benefits are not attracted or counteracted (doing something the opposite of God’s Will to produce an opposite effect of His actual Will) by the lust of the old nature (lower nature), its habits, abilities, desires, practices, etc.
• Anything generated from/by the old nature of man is against the Will of God. They are the pleasures of man’s Will without God to gratify the lust of his sight, mind, and sophisticated and intellectual pleasures.
• Today the Will of man’s desire is to live a menial life with or without the Spirit of God and His righteousness to live a life of entertainment and activities that excite the eyes, even so to allow it to enter into the House of Prayer.

What is the Kingdom of God? It is a spiritual Kingdom, not a temporal building!
• The Kingdom of God is the governing influence of a King over a colony called earth; impacting it with His Will, His Purpose, and His Intent.
• It is God’s intent to extend His Heavenly Kingdom (the Kingdom of Heaven) to earth: His invisible Kingdom to a visible world. So as it is in Heaven, so shall it be in earth.
• The Kingdom of God is the ruler-ship of God in earth through the heart of the spirit man.
• We are saved not to just go to Heaven, but we are saved to establish the Kingdom, the ruler-ship of God in the earth.
• We are to take back the dominion once given by God to Adam.
• In order for the Kingdom to be the ruler-ship of God in the earth through the heart of the spirit man, then the kingdom of God must be in you.

St Luke 17:21 says that the kingdom of God is within you.
St Luke 17:20 says that the kingdom of God comes not with observation, that is with signs to be observed or with visible display.

• Observation defined here as the action or process of observing something or someone carefully or in order to gain information; watchful; monitoring; examining
• We will never inherit the Kingdom of God and His righteousness through observation and imitation! Because it is spiritual!
• So we need to stop thinking that everything that appears to be abnormal from what we call normal is a sign that we are in the end times; Jesus is on His way back; or God is getting ready to destroy the earth.
• We cannot have the world and the Kingdom in our hearts.
• We cannot walk by the both of them.

St Matthew 6:24 No man (speaks to the spirit man with the gender male and female) can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever you idolize and trust in).

• Everything that we suffer from in this earth is from whatever man without Christ has created.
• Therefore the earth is a product of what man in his independence from God has created and allowed.
• We should not blame God for our human intervention without Him, and we should not think or believe that God is going come in and clean up what man has corrupted.
• Corruption is a human intervention.
• It is the Holy Spirit that makes God legal on earth through you.
• When we don’t or won’t allow the Holy Spirit to take His abode in us to possess and control we lose or deny Heavens influence in the earth, making it impossible to pray in earth what is going on in Heaven and bring it down to earth.
• The Holy Spirit is God’s connection between Heaven and earth, and without Him there is no connection between Heaven and earth. This is how we represent the Kingdom of God!
• What is the Kingdom of God? The Kingdom of God is any domain where the ruler-ship of God influence, power, and authority of God is in effect.
• The Kingdom of God is God’s Kingdom (of Heaven) is dominating an area.

Amen
