Drive Out and Take Possession

When you cross the Jordan River into the land of Canaan,  
you must drive out all the people living there. … 
Take possession of the land and settle in it,
because I have given it to you to occupy. Exodus 33:51-53 NLT

In Salvation Jesus saves us and we do nothing. This is typified with Israel crossing the Red Sea. God defeated their enemies, and they did nothing. All Moses did was wave his staff around a little. When they passed through the water, their baptism was one of freedom; they were no longer slaves. However, there was another baptism at the Jordon. (see Vincent Cheung, The Edge of Glory). God commanded two things after this second baptism into power. They were to “Drive Out” the inhabitants and then “Take Possession,” of the mike and honey, houses, gold and vineyards.

This archetype is realized in the baptism of the Spirit in Acts 1:4-8.
The decrees of God are logical (supralapsarian), and thus what we see in history is a reverse of the decrees. The book of Acts is the original, the promise land and Joshua was reversed engineered from the story of the church as described in Acts. They were the illustration, and Acts the original. Thus, the 2 baptisms in Exodus was the illustration for God’s original 2 baptisms of water and the Spirit.

Thus, we see Jesus and the disciple “Driving Out” demons and the religious leaders. Jesus and his disciples “took possession” of the good things, such as health, money, knowledge, spiritual powers, lands, leaderships and even kings.

This is where many Christians fail. They are like the people of Israel and are still stuck in the desert. They are there not because of persecution for the gospel sake, but because of their unbelief in God’s promises. God commanded Israel that the second baptism was one of power. Instead of God doing all the work Himself, He would empower them drive out and take possession. Because Israel had no faith they rebelled against God and refuse to be used by Him.

The issue is that good things like healing, prosperity, good relationships and so forth are in the promise land ready for God’s people to take procession of them. These are not like conversion and freedom, where you did nothing for it. The Spirit, like the wind blowing wherever it wants, gives new-birth and you were freed and started to believe. This is again like the Red Sea baptism. But after conversion God’s commands us to be baptized in the Spirit, which is seen in the Jordan. When Joshua and Israel come out of Jordan they had swords and shields. They were going to fight with God’s power, unlike with Pharaoh, when they did nothing.  In order for Jacob to grab his inheritance he must take up a sword.

God as already given healing and blessings in the finished atonement of Jesus. But unlike conversion, you must drive out Satan and take possession of these blessings by the fight of faith. Some are still in the desert and claim it is the will of God they are not healed. Like Israel, they put all the blame on God and overlook their unbelief. It is the same story over and over again. Some step into the promise land for 17 steps and claim they cant get healed because of the will of God, yet they haven’t faced one city or driven out one demon to take possession. Jesus commands us to pray and never give up. We are to keep driving out and take procession.

To be a good soldier one must develop internal power of faith, and be clothed with the power of the baptism of the Spirit.  When these are developed properly, there is no giant that can stop you from driving out and taking hold of any promise of healing, prosperity, relationships and moving mountains that Jesus said, no matter how big and glorious the promise.

The Hittites were the first Israel faced. Their name symbolizes fear. This is how demons, the old man and the 2 million Israelite unbelievers will try to pressure you to not go and take possession. But faith is stronger than fear, because faith has absolute confidence in God’s Word and not man’s sight or feelings.

As Strange as it Sounds, the Bible is For You

“I Can Do All Things Through Jesus who Strengthens Me”

Critics say this is only about suffering, so you cannot use this verse for prosperity, for example. However, Paul also mentions in context that Christ strengthens him for prosperity and good things as well.

Even if we narrow it down Paul’s own life, the “good” would include all his miracles, favor, visions, resurrections, powers and one supernatural thing after another. To teach at that school for a few years, is a supernatural success.

Thus, it would mean God gives strength for miracles, visions, resurrections, powers and one supernatural thing after another. If the critic cannot agree to at least this, then they are the ones ignoring the context.

Paul spoke how he was a shied to his churches, taking on the persecution of Christ for them. Thus, it is wrong to say all Christians should expect to suffer “like Paul.” We should expect some sufferings “for the gospel sake,” but “like Paul” is a different category. Most Christians can apply the promise of the Psalms to themselves, where it says to “seek God and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Paul was an exception to this in that God said He as called him to a specific type of ministry that will include much suffering. Most Christians are not in this type of binding ministry that Paul was in, and so some make composition fallacy at this point with Paul.

With that said, why would God, who who gave us His only Son, and who will freely give us all things, only strengthen us for suffering but not success? The Spirit strengthens us to have faith for all scripture, including when Jesus said, “whosoever believes in me, will do even greater things.” Thus I am strengthened to ask and receive all types of success and miracles. Because the Spirit was a promise of the gospel, then I can say, “by Christ.”

Also, the bible speaks of God empowering His children and promises to do so in many ways and in for all types of situations. The critics act as if God’s many promises to help and strengthen His children only apply to Paul when He suffers? How does that work? The fact is, many (if not a super majority) of the promises are for strength for good things like salvation, healing, prosperity, relational blessings, productivity in life and spiritual power and fruit.

And lastly, this whole thing can simply be dealt with one brut slap. The bible moralizes itself. (see Vincent Cheung. All Things are Yours) James moralizes Elijah to the horizon and back, and Paul does so in Corinthians 10. Thus, even if I were to moralize the text for myself to be wealthy, there is nothing wrong with it. If you are are Christian, then Paul and Peter are yours: yes, even time itself belongs to you; even the world belongs to you, that is, reality belongs to you. And as strange as it sounds, even the bible is for you to be strengthened for all things and be victorious over all things in this world.

Humility Without Exaltation Does Not Exist

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand,
that he may lift you up in due time.” (1 Peter 5:6)

It is odd to hear people boast of their humility before God. They tell us how they are the greatest of sinners and lowly before God. And yet, they are still sick, still have defective body parts, poor (or work 3 jobs, so that the only money they have is by human power), depressed, their neighbors, co-workers and family vex them. There is no sign of God’s miraculous power in their life; there is no sign of the gospel of Abraham on them. They look like outsiders to the Covenant. Basically, Satan steamrolls over them, and they call it humility before God.

Yet, Peter describes what happens to a humble person. God exalts them and lifts them up. What does Peter mean by God exalting someone in context of his own letters? Peter quotes Psalm 34 as an example of God blessing you. (read it). Four times the Psalmist says, “God delivers him out of ALL his troubles.” Let us say that 3 more times to get the weight of it. God delivers him out of ALL his troubles. God delivers him out of ALL his troubles. God delivers him out of ALL his troubles. Peter says by such promises (which include Psalm 34) we “Partake of the Divine Nature.”

Thus in context Peter’s own understanding of God lifting up and exalting someone is to “deliver them from all their troubles.” Peter also mentions in chapter 2 that “by His stripes we are healed,” which is understood by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 8:17) as bodily healing. We will not deal with genuine gospel persecution since that is a logical different category from troubles of life.

Thus, it is delusional to claim you are humble by a biblical standard and not have God deliver you from all your troubles. Not possible.

You might look at your life and see that you are not delivered from all your troubles. Will you blame God or yourself? Will you negate the bible, or will you negate your own calculations? If you are truly a child of God, then do not be bitter at your Father’s disciple. He loves you. It is meant to help and build you up. He wants you to be helped and blessed more than you want it. It’s not Him you need to convince, its your own unbelief that needs to be convinced of His love and faithful promises.

Here is the big idea. Humility starts with your starting point for knowledge. Humility starts with knowledge and faith; it does not first begin behavior. The bible is the sole standard of good and evil. The bible says sickness is evil and healing is good. The fact that Jesus died for sickness as a substitutionary atonement, so that He took on our sickness (the bad) and we have the healing (good), it would trample the blood of Jesus to call sickness good. The same with sin (bad) and righteousness (good) that Jesus was our substitute for. Just because Jesus said if you have been forgiven much, then you will love much, does not make sin good. The same with other categories such as sickness and healing. In fact, the bible commands us to be healed (James 5:14-15). Thus is evil to stay sick and good to be healed, in regards to your accountability before God.

Thus, the only way to “humble” yourself before God if you are sick, for example, is to regard your experiences and observations about sickness as garbage and horse s#5@. This is putting off the old man and his old way of thinking. Then you put on the new man. You replace your trash experience and trash observation with the superior word, commands and promises of God. You repent of human speculation over God’s Word, and start to read, meditate, and confess the promises of God about healing. This is how you begin to “humble” yourself under God’s mighty hand. And as Peter says, God will then lift you up and exalt you. Image the God of Gods, the king of kings exalting you! Truly nothing in this world compares to it. No one can exalt you the way God is able to do so.

Look at Job at the end of his life. Double the wealthiest guy in the whole area. Excessively wealthy. Double long life. Many children. This is a man who God exalted. This was a humble man. Moses was a humble man, and God exalted him to be the leader of Israel. Joseph was humble and God exalted him in one day to the right hand of Pharaoh. Look at all the people in the gospels and Acts who humbled themselves with faith in God’s healing promise. God delivered them ALL from their sickness troubles. All of them. We are not talking about the obvious examples of God exalting sinners for the day of slaughter. Thus, show me a man whom God has exalted, and I will show you a humble man. Why is this the cause? Because if you humble yourself, God will exalt you.

Outsiders Beg; Kings Command

“…It is taught (from Characteristics) that a one-time prayer is enough, and all other prayers after should be in thanksgiving. I found this useful when I first followed the WOF, because Reformed prayer is just begging in unbelief...”

Read Vincent Cheung, The Extreme Faith Teacher.

This is the standard of faith and the immediate effects that come from a single prayer of faith. This is the standard Jesus held His disciples to. This is the same standard He will hold us to. This is the standard of faith and its effects we will be judged against. There is only one definition for what faith and its effects look like, and that glory belongs to scripture alone. This standard is not just a suggestion, it is a command. If you love God you will obey it, if you hate God you will disobey it. This is not rocket science.

I understand the context of a person coming from a teaching of unbelief and then hearing the many voices of the charismatics and Word of Faith. They are broadly correct on the topic of faith, but have many wrong points that come from Arminianism and self-imposed narrow applications that do not belong to Scripture (such as the 5 or 9 fold gifts of the Spirit ministry). With that said, this idea of faith is simple enough for a child to grasp, and so, one ought to be ashamed theologians can confuse them.

The reformed prayer is a beggar’s prayer, and this is why they see no results. Begging is for those who are outsiders of God’s contract. Insiders relate to God differently. I am glad you see this. Faith is “confidence” or “absolute certainty” God will do what He promised. One man asked Jesus, “if you can,” and Jesus was offended and said, “if I can?” Jesus never commanded us to “beg for the things we want.” Jesus commanded us to speak His Name in faith and make demons scream and mountains fly. The difference is huge. We are children of God. Children do not beg as if they are outsiders sitting abandoned on the road. Some theologians are indeed outsiders to God’s Contract and so all they can do is beg, and then try to deceive God’s children in following their outsider behavior. Yet we are indeed children of God. We sit at His table as co-heirs with Christ. Children ask the Father for a fish and they get a fish. They ask for the Spirit of God (can anyone put a value on the Spirit of God?), and the Father will absolutely give this to His sons and daughters. He will withhold nothing good from you. And “good” is defined by Jesus, as asking what you want and God giving this to you. The bible is the only definition of reality. Only God defines good and evil. God defines good as asking whatever you want and God giving it to you. This is good, because God thinks so.

In fact, we reign as kings in this life through the credited righteousness of Jesus and His unmerited favor (Romans 5:17-21). A king who begs is not a king. A king who does not speak is not a king. A king who does not decree is not a king. A king decrees and it happens. Royalty commands, and they are obeyed. “YOU will say… [then] nothing will be impossible to YOU, (Matthew 17:20).” “If YOU have faith … it will obey YOU, (Luke 17:6). When gods speak, reality obeys THEM.

Of course, it is God power at work in us, and not own power, but because the Bible rejects pantheism, when WE speak it is us, NOT God. Thus, reality will obey us when we speak in faith.

The basic idea is simple: read the promises, meditate on the promises, decree (in Jesus Name) the promises over yourself and then thank God for giving you the things you prayed/proclaimed. Some charismatic fools can get narrowly hung up on saying, “once you do this only keep thanking God for the results and do not pray the prayer again.” This comes from an overzealous fear of words. As Numbers 13-14 shows, you need to be careful with your words. (see Vincent Cheung, The Edge of Glory). If you speak unbelief, then God will give the evil you spoke; yet, if you speak faith, God will give the good you spoke. However, the bible says more about this. Consider David in Psalm 31:22 spoke a word of unbelief, but God helped Him.  Obviously, David repented and re-asked for help and God helped him. Peter denied Jesus 3 times, but then re-affirmed his devotion and God received him back. This is the big idea, unbelief is strong, but a word of faith is stronger. If you made a mistake, turn around and speak the word of faith again, and God will help you. The Word and Spirit are stronger. A Confession of Faith is much stronger. Do not fear.

Also, Jesus directly commands that we pray and never give up. Thus, to say you cannot repeat your prayer, is a direct rebuttal of Jesus Himself. Jesus had to pray for a blind man twice. A person with “great faith” and who as developed a mature faith will indeed speak short one time prayers or confessions and will often see it happen immediately. We are all to strive for this level of power and faith. We will all give an account for how well we sought to obey Jesus in acquiring this standard of faith. Here is the big idea, if we had perfect faith, then we would only need one prayer for all things, but even then there might be a few exceptions, like Jesus praying for the blind man. But since no one has perfect faith, we are commanded to pray in a group (when two or three are gather..) we are commanded to have our elders come and pray with us, and we are given the gift of faith to help compensate for our imperfect faith.  God loves us so much that He has given us many tools to help us get the things we ask for. He wants to give you many good things. He is more than willing and able.

Thus, many charismatic teachers teach faith in practical steps (although flawed), to help struggling saints develop faith. Thus, we have two categories. One is the standard of faith as taught by Jesus, and the Second are pastors giving practical steps in how to get to that standard. Do not confuse the two. Some of these steps are not commandments, but can be helpful tools, and yet others are just wrong.

Back to our basic teaching, “read the promises, meditate on the promises, confess/pray the promises and (if you need to wait), then thank God for granting your request. This is great teaching. However, some say only repeat the last one, but as shown above, this is not necessarily so. Sometimes it is better to repeat the whole process. Maybe your mind is not renewed enough, and you need to establish the promises in your mind more. Thus, the practical application of this does depends on person to person, but the overall biblical applicable is the same for all.

Another reason why the advice to never repeat your prayer, but only give thanks, is bad, is because it puts the focus man and brings up fear. It puts the focus on you and then fear comes from this. Giving thanks for the prayed outcome is great, but if your mind is not renewed as it ought to be, then just giving thanks will not work (although, God still might grant it out of sheer kindness). You do need a honest self-evaluation, but remember that the focus of faith is God, His Word, His faithfulness and His love toward you. If you are focused on your self-evaluation and feelings, then by definition you are not in faith any more. Often, when developing faith and even keeping it, you need to re-read the promises, re-meditate and then on this foundation pray, and faith will naturally arise by God’s power.

Because Jesus wants you to have the things you pray for, He made it a command to pray and never give up. Stop and think about that for a moment. He wants you to have your request so much, He commanded that you never give up. He promises God will absolutely give you what you ask for. This is how much He loves you. He wants you to have the things you pray for, more than you do. Thus, it is not God you need to convince to give you what you ask; rather, it is your stubborn mind and unbelief, that needs convincing. God has already convinced Himself to give you whatever you ask for in faith. Thus, if there is a lack of results, it is not on God’s part, but you. So, in the confidence of God’s love for you re-read the promise, re-meditate and re-confess the promises of God.  

The important thing to do when praying is to not hedge your prayer in uncertainty and unbelief. Leave no room for your prayer to not be answered, because God has already convinced Himself to give you what you ask. This is essentially what a Word of Faith declaration is. It is a short-hand prayer that knows the outcome is certain. Thus faith speaks this way, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, standup and walk.” No fear, no hedging. Just absolute confidence in God doing what He said He would do. And if you have read the gospels, Jesus loved this kind of faith. In fact, Jesus publicly boasted about such people before God and men. And if you have this kind of faith, Jesus will boast and exalt you before God and men. Imagine, the God of Gods and the King of Kings exalting you. Surely there is nothing greater in all reality.

“What I’m about to tell you is true.

What I’m about to tell you is true.
What you lock on earth will be locked in heaven.
What you unlock on earth will be unlocked in heaven.
(Matthew 18:18)

In context of Matthew 18 it does mention forgiveness, but it also mentions faith to ask for anything and then get this anything. This is also said in Matthew 16, in context of Jesus saying He will build His church with Peter’s declaration that He is the Son of God, and this expansion of His kingdom will be so unstoppable that the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Thus, the context allows for a broad use of this. It is an all encompassing power that belongs to followers of Jesus who have faith; this is the same faith one uses to be saved, to be healed, to move mountains, to expand His kingdom, to forgive, and ask for anything you desire. Think about it: you have faith to receive a miracle of wealth, and then use this to fund the gospel mission. Not only did you unlock a financial door here on earth, but by sowing this back into God’s work you have unlocked treasure for yourself in heaven. Faith opens doors on earth, in heaven and in other dimensions. Faith is the master key. Jesus says give to Caesar what belongs to “him.” He says if you tell this mountain to be cast into the sea with faith, it will obey “you,” and etc. Thus, “you” cast out demons and “you” free an enslaved soul who receives Jesus, then what “you” loosed on earth will also be loosed in the next life.

All Authority Has Been Given to Me

Satan told Jesus,
“I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.” (Luke 4:6-7)

After Jesus’ resurrection and defeat of Satan (triumphing over Satan) Jesus says,
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Jesus uses His authority to endow His followers with miraculous power by the baptism of the Spirit.

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” (Luke 24:49)

““Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
(Acts 1:4,8)

“When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1-2)

If this was true, before the resurrection and before Jesus had sat down at the right hand of power, and all authority given to him both in heaven and earth, then how much more do we have authority and power to drive out demons, heal the sick and proclaim the Kingdom today!

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazarethwalk.” (Acts 3:6)


Father, You LOVE them as much as you Love Me

I want to highlight how Jesus concentrated on His love toward us, when He was focusing on the doctrine of asking whatever we want in prayer and getting it. The two passages are from John 14-17, and Ephesians 3.

Jesus says as much as the Father loved Him, He (Jesus) loves us.
He says as much as the Father loves Him, the Father loves us.
He says the glory/value the Father gave Jesus, He has given to us.
Jesus says the peace He has, He has given to us.
Jesus says the house He dwells in, He has given us real estate there.
Jesus says the Joy that He has, He has given to us.
Jesus says the word the Father gave him, He has given to us.
Jesus says the Spirit and Power for ministry He has, He has given to us.
Jesus says the authority the Father gave Him, He has given to us.
Jesus says He is our friend.
Jesus says He wants to be with us.
Jesus says He wants us to be with Him.
As if this is not enough, He says He wants to be in us the way the Father is in Him and us in Him.

This is both an action doctrine, in how God acts toward us, but also a definition of our identity in Jesus Christ.

In context of all things Jesus kept saying, ask whatever you want and you will get it.

Thus, when Paul prays for the church in Ephesians, the prayer is basically about them knowing about God’s love and then also experiencing God’s love. The conclusion of knowing and experiencing God love leads to two things. One, is that we are made full with God’s ablity and life. Second, is that in our prayers for good things, God gives to us exceedingly beyond what we ask or think. Think about the 12 large baskets left over from the feeding of the five thousand.

Think about how Jesus and the Apostles focus seems so different from how some preach on this topic. They always talk about the will of God this and that, in regards to prayer. Yet, Jesus does not even mention this, if only indirectly by suggesting God’s will is that prayers are based on man’s will. Jesus’ emphasis is about how loving God is toward us. Thus, when we pray, we presuppose the greatness of our Father’s love, so that “whatever” we ask for, we get it. A person who receives the truths of their beloved, superior identity, as Jesus taught us above, will obviously approach the throne of God will boldness and gratitude. They will ask and they will receive.

“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a PLACE for you.” (14:1)

 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And WHATEVER you ASK in My name, that I will DO, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. (14:12-14)

“Because I live, you will LIVE also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. (14:19-20)

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will LOVE him, and We will come to him and make Our HOME with him. (14:23)

“PEACE I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (14:27)

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ASK what you desire, and it shall be DONE for you. By this My Father is glorified (15:7-8)

“As the Father LOVED Me, I also have LOVED you; abide in My love. (15:9)

 “These things I have spoken to you, that My JOY may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.” (15:11)

“Greater LOVE has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his FRIENDS.” (15:13)

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you FRIENDS, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you” (15:15)

 “You did not choose Me, but I CHOSE you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain” (15:16)

“If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.” (15:20)

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” (16:13)

“Ask, and you will receive, that your JOY may be full.” (16:24)

 In that day you will ASK in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;  for the Father Himself LOVES you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.” (16:26-27)

 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have PEACE. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (16:33)

“They know that everything you have given me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.  (17:7-8)

“GLORY has come to me through them.” (17:10)

“I say these … that they may have the full measure of my JOY within them.” (17:13)

“For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.” (17:19)

“I have given them the GLORY that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me” (17:22-23)

“That you LOVE them as much as you love me” (17:23 NLT)

“Then your LOVE for me will be in them, and I will be in them.” (17:26)

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s LOVE and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his LOVE is.  May you experience the LOVE of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
(Ephesians 3:16-20 NLT)


God does not Listen to Sinners

“We know God does not listen to sinners.” -Former blind man

Jesus, not the WCF, but God’s test of orthodoxy is asking for whatever you want and then getting this from Him (John 14-16). This is something only children and insiders and do. It is not something the religious traditionalists can mimic by washing the outside and not the inside. No. This is an outside proof of orthodoxy God has put into place. God has been kind to us so that we have an easy test to know if someone is an outsider or insider of the Contract made by His Son’s blood.  Some things the traditionalist can mimic, but as the former blind man testified to the traditionalists in the Sanhedrin, “we know God does not listen to sinner,” thus they cannot perform this test of orthodoxy. They do not get answers to their prayers, because they have no faith, and they have no faith because they are sinners and outsiders to God’s Contract blessings.

This is why men have conspired against God to form their own creeds and garbage test of orthodoxy in the WCF. Their trash level orthodoxy protects them from having to be insiders to God’s convent and from the embarrassment to prove they belong to God. Their test of orthodoxy is an intellectual a@#-wipe, their doctrines are demonic.

This former blind man still testifies today against all the trash level orthodoxy that the traditionist use to expel and persecute those who follow God’s test of orthodoxy.  This former blind man will one day testify against all traitors to God’s orthodoxy. He will point his finger to many famous and historical so-called heroes of the church and say, “we know God does not listen to sinners.”

Because we Know God Served us

For I will forgive their wickedness
    and will remember their sins no more.

Hebrews 8:13

After He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.  For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being Sanctified.”
Hebrews 10:12-14

For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.”
Hebrews 10:1-3.

God has once-and-for-all forgiven and forgotten your sins as a believer. This forgetting is not spiritual Alzheimer’s. God knows all things. However, God unlike us, has perfect and compete mastery of His mind. Thus, if He chooses not to consider our sins (i.e. to forget), then He does so with perfect control of His Mind. There will not be a moment when something triggers Him, and He then considers all your sins “against you.” This is something Christians need to imitate their Father more in. They need to have mastery of their minds so that the emotions they experience is by their own control and timing, rather than their emotions controlling them like dumb animals.

Hebrews 8 says “where there is forgiveness, there no longer remains a sacrifice.” If our future sins needed to be forgiven, then there would remain a need for a sacrifice to remove them. But if they are already forgiven by Jesus and accepted by the Father, then there is no need for any more sacrifices. Jesus sat down because it was finished.

In Romans 6 Paul says for us to reckon yourself dead to sin, or assent to this as a truth about you. We are not perfect, as both James and John remind us in their letters. Thus this is essentially a “Word of Faith confession,” on faith and not by sight. By faith we assent and declare we are sinless and dead to sin. If we did this by our experience, then we could not say this. It is by faith in God’s promise alone we can say this.

Hebrews 10 says that if worshipers are truly forgiven, then they would not be “conscience” about their sin. As with God, it is not as if we cannot technically remember our sins, but because we know they are forgiven, and God has declared us righteous, we do not recall and consider them anymore. In fact, the bible’s meaning for “do not worry,” means “do not think” about this or that. The passage goes on to say that Jesus has already, “perfected” us who are being sanctified today. We are perfect in God’s eyes. This is the only real relevant thing that matters.

Thus, if you are mindful of your sins today, more than how righteous, how perfect, blameless, favored, a child of God and a co-heir with Jesus, then you are weak in your inner man; you are weak regarding faith in the finished work of Jesus.

Why then do we confess our sins to God, you ask?

The simplest reason is the most obvious, which is why I guess people miss it. God commands that we do. Jesus gives a daily prayer (The Lord’s prayer) that has in it our confession for mercy. Even if we are given no explanation as to why, this is all the reason we need to know. Christian responsibility is solely on God’s command and nothing else.

Even though God does not consider our sins against us, and we are not conscience of our own sins, because they are forgiven, yet we are still in a relationship, fellowship and communion with God. We love Him. We fellowship with Him daily. We communion with Him more than or own family. We love Him so much. He saved us. He is the world to us. If we sin, it was against Him. It is good as ask forgiveness and mercy from Him. Also, the devil can use this against us. However, if we confess our sins, God is “just” (not merely merciful) to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. This cleansing is about our conscience toward God, and renewing our thinking. It is not about the official record against us, or that God suddenly considers our sins against us. It is not as if the Father takes the List Jesus nailed to the cross, and daily rewrites new sins on it, until we confess. It was nailed to the cross because our entire record was delt with and finished. Our confession helps to protect us. Thus, there is no room for the devil to accuse us. It renews our mind by reminding us that all our sins past, present and future are already forgiven, and we are holy in God’s sight. This is putting on the new-man.

We ask, not because our futures sins are not forgiven. We ask from a position of victory and superiority. God as removed all our sins and Jesus at that place and time, endured the punishment for them.  In God’s mind, (which is the only Mind that matters) He considers all our sins punished on Jesus, therefore they were. The receipt was printed off and nailed to the cross. It is done.

Many focus on sins way, way, way too much. They do this because they do not actually believe they are forgiven, and so they can’t move on from that point.  Forgiveness of sins is the doorway of the gospel. The content of the gospel are the many blessings, miracles, favor, healings and prosperity. Many stands at the doorway of the gospel and stop. They never enter in the gospel. They think they are honoring the Master of the house by admiring the door, but the Master is sitting at the table waiting for you to come in and dine with Him. He is only pleased once you enter and partake of the table. To stand at the door and never partake of His good things, is a dishonor and insult to the Master of the gospel.

The same with endless prayers. You have the authority to use Jesus Name one time and command Satan and sickness to leave. One mention of the Lord’s prayer is all you need to ask forgiveness. If you want to ask more, I will not tell you not too, but only say watch your own mind and ask if you are being sin or righteousness conscience.

Many are sin conscience. But we just went over the fact that if we are truly forgiven, we are NOT sin conscience, but rather righteousness conscience. I do not know another man’s conscience, but they must be honest with themselves. You are commanded to be constantly conscience of your righteousness, your sonship and companionship with God, not sin. Satan is constantly mindful of our sins. Many act like their father the devil.

 Paul in 2 Corinthians 5 say our old man is already gone, dead and does not exist. We are now, a new creation. If you are not a new creation you are still unsaved. A few verses later Paul elaborates on what this “new creation” is by saying we are the righteousness of God. Do not think on the old man. This why Satan, tries to deceive Christians to label themselves with titles outside of Jesus Christ, to keep them weak and defeated. He does this with sinners (I am pathetic, a vile sinner, a slut, a grasshopper) so that it is harder to accept the truths preached by Christianity.

At any rate, we think about reality. If someone is born-again and keeps thinking about the old man in unrighteousness, they are delusional and disconnected form realty in their mind. They are in essence putting the old-man thinking back on and taking the new-man off.  

The reality is that I am the righteousness of God. We are commanded to put off the old man, and its way of thinking, and put on the new-man and its thinking. This new man thinks he is the very righteousness of God and not merely a sub-heir, but a co-heir with Jesus Christ, who sits at the right hand of Power. This is who I am.

 “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
Hebrews 4:16

If you are sin conscience, do not expect to “boldly” approach the throne to receive help. We hope such persons will have help despite their disobedient, cowardly and non-bold approaching, but for us we will be conscience of our righteousness when approaching the throne. By this we will approach boldly. We will not serve God like Martha, because we know God served us and gave us His favor, sonship and righteousness. Thus, we will sit at His feet and keep receiving His unmerited supply. We can boldly receive this because we know we are so righteous and perfect and glorious. Because God’s unmerited favor is the foundation for all our good things, His praise will forever be on our lips and His worship on our tongues.


I AM a Grasshopper?

The Bible never calls Christians “sinners” and never calls their hearts “idolatry” or “deceitful” referring to their life after regeneration.

Stop belittling yourself for nothing, you fool! The power for holiness that the Spirit has placed in us is much greater than you can imagine.

Andre De Mattos Duarte

Andre is correct.

We are never labelled as sinners in the bible, that is, those who are born again. We are called children of God with God’s “seed” or “nature in us. We are told if our nature is “sin” and we wilfully practice it, we are not from God, but Satan (1 John 3-4).

The Corinthians who had so many issues, are labelled by the Apostle Paul as those who have inherited life, death, time and the entire world. Paul’s says they will one day judge angels. He labels the people, whose behavior is (in some areas) human and sinful, as “saints,” “new creations,” “reconciled to God,” and the very “righteousness of God.” He says they are “God’s light,” “God’s righteousness,” and “God’s temple.” He never says they are the worst of sinners. He says the opposite. He says they use to be that way, but now they are something different.
Paul says the “gospel” was predestined for (not God’s glory), but theirs. He says they have the fellowship of the Son, and even have the Mind of Christ. Referring to us as a true definition (A tree is organic), the bible always labels us as Saints, holy, undefiled, light, righteousness, power and heirs etc.

Paul did say in the present tense “I am the worst of sinners.” However, it is not that simple. It is said like a label he earned in the past for persecuting the body of Christ, and to this day, no one has taken the label from him. Thus, the entire context, as a whole, shows it to be a past tense label, to which very few or none but Paul can claim. The absurdity to say this is meant in the present tense, would mean Paul presently is attacking the body of Christ in the same way he did before he was born-from-above, because that is the context for the label.

For example, if I was in the military for a few years and earned the record for the “worst parachuter.” However, I left and have been working as a butler for 50 years, and yet, after all this time my worst record still stands. If that is the case I can say, “I am the worst parachuter.” Even though I am not presently in the military, or presently a parachuter, nor have been for 50 years, I can say in the present tense (I am the worst parachuter), but it refers to the past.

Since I have the record as the worst parachuter, then no one else can claim it. If they do they are delusional and a thief. Paul says God chose him specifically, as the worst sinner, to show off His grace and power. Thus, you cannot claim it for yourself, it belongs to Paul. Christians who do this are delusional, thieves and are acting like spiritual perverts. To claim to be the worst of sinners in the present tense today, would logically mean you are presently attacking and destroying the body of Jesus Christ, or something equally damming. If that is truly you, then claim such a title so that I can avoid you. If not, then you are so delusional, I would also want to avoid you.

Why do I need to explain basic grammar to adults who say they know the bible and can discern it?

Jesus, like Paul referring to the behaviour of the Corinthians, at times would label His disciples as “foolish” or “spiritual perverts” because they could not cast out demon, but this was not a label about who they are. We all find those few sins we are more easily ensnared by, but to label ourselves by them, is to label the ministry of Jesus, His Gospel and nature with such labels. It is horrific level blaspheme. and insulting. Jesus is not a minister of sin, or sickness or any other negative thing to His chosen ones.

I always find it odd that so-called Christians want to affirm how awful they are. I am an porn-star Christian, I am a alcoholic Christian, I am a vile sinner, I am a grasshopper and they are too big (etc.).

Such a confession would logically lead back to God, and how ineffective His is at forgiving, sanctifying and empowering His chosen ones. There also could be some connection to the unforgivable sin against the Spirit, by connecting your confession of sinfulness, worthlessness, and patheticness to the Spirit who lives in the believer.

At the end of the day God gets to play with reality and define reality the way he wants. I am the righteousness of God and not that God is the righteousness of God. I’m am. I am what I am. By the grace of God. The Bible rejects pantheism, thus, what God creates and gives me, is “me,” or “mine.” I am a child of God, a prince of heaven, with free access to the throne, while other created beings do not have this access. This is me. I am what I am, by the grace of God.

When God thinks of me, He thinks I am holy; He thinks I am righteous with His righteousness, blameless, and empowered with His power; God thinks I am amazing and glorious. Who am I to disregard God unless I’m a reprobate?

That is why the word of faith confessions of reprobates is a confession in how sinful God sees them, because that who they are. It is natural for reprobates to label themselves as grasshoppers. God will see to it they die as grasshoppers in the desert, every last one of them. But the children of faith, who give a declaration of confidence in God’s promises; yes, those who confess His great promises of healing, miracles and power are true for them today (no matter how fantastical they are) God will insure they will inherit the land, every last one of them.
