I am my own god!
In this day of high speed technology and innovation we seem to get more creative in how we can glorify ourselves. Many people can't differentiate between healthy self esteem and idolizing their own selves. We are doing everything that our nature enjoys at the peril of losing our souls! We are guilty of mixing the profane things that God hates with the sacred in His name. We need to be delivered from the vainglory of Self Worship!

Letters to the Elders
   It is worth noting in passing that the office of priest, so prominent in the Old Testament, is not taken over by the early church. Prophets and elders (cf. Ezekiel 7:26) have their counterparts in the church and these titles are used. But there is no official counterpart to the priest, for, as the New Testament teaches, the whole church is a “holy priesthood” (1 Peter 2:5), or a “royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9). We who are in Christ have all “been made priests to his God” (Revelation 1:6). Each individual has access to the holy of holies, God’s throne of grace, because of the once-for-all atoning death of Christ. No officer in the church has the function of mediating between the believer and God.

The Resurrected Life, Part 2: (Death to Life)
The Gospel is so much more than a self-help message. Without Christ, we weren’t just bad. We weren’t unchurched. We didn’t need a "little" help. We were dead. And being dead is a huge problem. Dead people can’t do a thing to help themselves. Not one thing. So the Gospel begins with really bad news—all have sinned and can’t do a single thing to improve their standing with God. But the Gospel ends with great news! The Gospel begins with people who are spiritually dead because of the penalty and the power of sin, but through Jesus, the spiritually dead are raised to life.

The Resurrected Life
Christian, do you know the power of the resurrection of Christ? Are your thoughts those of one who is risen with Him, set on things above where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God? Are you, as being raised up with Him, dead to sin, dead to the pleasures, to the greatness, to the fading glory of the world which crucified the Lord of glory? Do the things of the world—those things which, as far as man was concerned, caused the death of Jesus—no longer exercise any influence over your thoughts and over your life?

The God Fellow
 All the believers in Christ have the privilege to be God’s fellow workers, those who work the work of the Lord(see 1 Cor. 16:10) and even abound in the work of the Lord (1 Cor. 15:58). The way to do this is not by seeing the need to do something for God and going to do it right away, but by first allowing Christ to work Himself into us and make His home in our heart (Eph. 3:17) so that He may grow in us and fill our entire inner being with Himself (Col. 2:19).

Devil's Pie
 The Bible describes mankind in much the same way. Isaiah 59:7 says, “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.” This tendency for sin is something that every person has.

Living The Message
 We are a unique people formed by the life-changing message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—in effect, a worldwide message tribe. But if we are recipients of a pay-it-forward-type message, then that makes us all messengers! Every believer is, therefore, a messenger and a missionary. And Christianity itself is an intrinsically missional faith. Even the newest believer seems to understand the universality of the Gospel message; they rightly intuit that because it is “good news,” it is meant to be passed on and that somehow to sit on the message is to fail in our obligations to Jesus and his cause.

Prayer Windows, Prayer Doors, Prayer Gates
 Prayer is seriously powerful business. So often, though, we treat it as a perfunctory task to be checked off our daily to-do list. How can we shift our attitudes from boredom and obligation to joy and expectation? The Lord always inclines His ear to His children. Learn the foundational principles of effective prayer, and how to confidently approach God with our petitions and requests.

Severing Strongholds By Binding The Strongman
 If we want to accomplish anything in either the natural or spiritual realms, we must engage in spiritual warfare(Ephesians 6:12). In Mark 3:27 Jesus said, “No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.” When Adam and Eve sinned they turned over the title deed of the earth to Satan. Satan is called “god of the world” in 2 Corinthians 4:4, “Prince of this world” in John 14:30 and “prince of the power of the air” in Ephesians 2:2. In 1 John 5:19, the Apostle John said, “We know that we are of God and that the whole world lies in the grip of the evil one.” We must “first bind the strong man” (Mark 3:27) if we are going plunder his house – this world over which he rules. This is particularly true in seeing people “rescued from the domain of darkness and transferred to the kingdom of His beloved Son” (Colossians 1:13). This is what was taking place in Mark 3:14-15 – “He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach, and to have authority to cast out the demons,” which Jesus Himself had been doing.

Self Worship: The Religion of Self
Self-love is the very hallmark of this age, and all the others that follow are results of it. It is this selfishness, broadcast at us incessantly, that causes men to be proud and blasphemers, traitors and boasters, unthankful, and unholy because everything is inward. "Me first, and if I have time, maybe I'll think about seeing to your needs" is the credo of most. But Christians are supposed to have a different hallmark (John 13:34-35; 15:12-13). A Christian's attitude, his outlook, the way he approaches life, is 180-degrees away from the way society has been set up to function by Satan the Devil. We are not to be lovers of ourselves, but we are to love one another as Christ has loved us - totally opposite to the way we would naturally want to go.

Choosing The Will Of God
Our God is good. When He asks us to obey Him, choosing to do His will even when it is not our will, He is giving us the opportunity for blessing. The will of God always leads to a happy place. The ultimate example of this is Jesus in the garden before His crucifixion.

What is the Will Of God
 God's will can refer to His perfect plan known since the beginning of time, God's teachings for all people, God's specific desires for a community of people, or God's unique plan for our individual lives. God knows all that will take place, has commanded us to follow certain teachings, and leads and guides both individuals and communities of believers toward certain actions that bring glory to His name.

Modeling The Message
 Having a tough time modeling God's message? Feel unappreciated? Misunderstood? A little foolish? Ridiculed? So it goes, pilgrim. Rose gardens and pillow fights went out with the flood. These are rugged days. Without much padding in the seats or protection from the wind. It takes two things to keep from folding in the stretch: a tough hide and a tender heart. Hosea had both. And the scars to prove it. He died rejected and ignored. So did Christ . . . until the resurrection.

The Net Breaker
 The breaker is come up - He who is to give them deliverance, and lead them out on the way of their return. He who takes down the hurdles, or makes a gap in the wall or hedge, to permit them to pass through. This may apply to those human agents that shall permit and order their return. And God is at their head may refer to their final restoration when the Lord Jesus shall become their leader, they have returned unto Him as the Shepherd and Bishop of their souls; and they and the Gentiles forming one fold under one shepherd, to go no more out into captivity forever. Lord, hasten the time!

Living The Body Life
 If we allow the Lord to touch us through His Body concerning our demeanor, attitude, function, and measure in the meetings, we may have a way to go on with Him. We need to come to the Lord personally and let His light– in His time and in His way – shine on us concerning our living in the church life and our function in the Body.

Hide Until The Right Time
 You’ll find this all through the Scriptures in the lives of God’s hidden servants: God hid Joseph in prison before he came to the palace. He hid Moses in the desert for a third of his life before he led the people out of Egypt. God hid David in the mountains, running in and out of caves from Saul before he was recognized as king. In the New Testament, God hid Paul for three years in Arabia after his conversion, before he became a missionary. And, God hides Elijah at Cherith before his great life contribution at Carmel. Don’t count it a strange thing if God hides you. Here’s the principle: When God chooses to hide you for a time, He is preparing you for a greater purpose.

The Newness of God
The whole of Romans 6:4 says, "We have been buried therefore with Him through baptism into death that as Christ was raised from among the dead through the glory of the Father, even so, we also should walk in newness of life." The Greek word translated "that" here can be rendered "in order that" pointing to a result, an issue. If we are not buried into Christ’s death, we cannot have the result spoken of in this verse. We have been buried into death in order that we may walk in newness of life. The reference to Christ’s being raised from among the dead through the glory of the Father indicates a glorious resurrection. As Christ was raised from among the dead in a glorious resurrection, even so, we also should walk in newness of life. However, many do not experience the death of Christ; yet they endeavor to walk in newness of life. You were the one buried into death. The one who has been resurrected to walk in newness of life is not the original you, the one who was buried; it is Christ with you. We Christians are too natural. Our thinking and our understanding are so natural. We even understand the Bible according to our natural mentality. Because we are still governed by our natural concepts, we may say, "The Bible tells us that we should walk in newness of life. Therefore, let us walk in newness of life." But this is not possible if we have not been buried and if we do not remain in death. If we come out of death, how can we walk in newness of life? It is impossible.

Do This One Thing
The Lord, who is the believer's light, is the strength of his life; not only by whom but in whom he lives and moves. In God let us strengthen ourselves. The gracious presence of God, his power, his promise, his readiness to hear prayer, the witness of his Spirit in the hearts of his people; these are the secret of his tabernacle, and in these, the saints find cause for that holy security and peace of mind in which they dwell at ease. The psalmist prays for constant communion with God in holy ordinances. All God's children desire to dwell in their Father's house. Not to sojourn there as a wayfaring man, to tarry but for a night; or to dwell there for a time only, as the servant that abides not in the house forever; but to dwell there all the days of their life, as children with a father. Do we hope that the praising of God will be the blessedness of our eternity? Surely then we ought to make it the business of our time. This he had at heart more than anything. Whatever the Christian is as to this life, he considers the favor and service of God as the one thing needful. This he desires, prays for and seeks after, and in it, he rejoices.

Giving Up My Position 2 Get God's Perspective
You know that God has something good in store for you. You don't believe he intends you to live a life of painful drudgery in which each day is a total drag. After all, the Bible is chock full of passages about joy. While this certainly doesn't mean that every single day is a parade and circus, it does mean that an overall sense of gladness should permeate your life.

The Battle Of Believing
One of the most important things in our lives is the control of our minds. Our thoughts are powerful. They can harm us or do us good. The Bible says, “As [a person] thinks … so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). Many people have troubled minds. There’s a story told in the eighth chapter of Ezekiel about priests and leaders who on the outside were worshiping the true and living God, but who on the inside, in their minds, had idols. They were worshiping other gods and acting out sexual fantasies, and God condemned them as great sinners.

Not In My Family
For most of us, the place where we first met the Christian faith was at home. Maybe it was Dad telling Bible stories, or Mom getting dressed for church, or maybe Grandma telling about how it was when she was younger, in a day when faith was a bigger part of life even for those who didn't have any faith. Maybe it was prayers at mealtime, or before going to bed. Or a cousin's wedding, an aunt's funeral, or a baby brother's baptism. As life itself does for little children, faith-stuff revolved around the family and family members. The sad thing is, this is getting less and less true, and not because some cynical atheists declared a subtle war on Christian values (though that is out there in today's social ether). It is less true because we all have much less of a family nowadays, often without one of the parents, and with the children, all split off doing their own thing. And it is less true because the believing Christian parents have forgotten how to pass the Christian faith on to their children. We have less of a family spirituality today because we have less of a family. It takes teaching. It takes talking about why you are Christian, and what that means in any given situation. But most of all, it takes actually going about being Christians every day. You have to model it yourselves. Children need to see you when you struggle with the faith. They need to see you live according to the faith, they need to see you fail and try again, they need to see you hurt and celebrate and doubt and shrink and grow and be hypocrites (as we all sometimes are) and still turn to Jesus and live in God's grace.

Saved with No Flavor: The Tasteless Christian
“In today’s world, the Church needs the qualities of salt. To the Christian of today, Jesus tells us to be the “salt of the earth.” In fact,in Matthew 5:13, He says, “You are the salt of the earth. When Christians live too close to the world, they lose their flavor (power) to help and to heal, to be a witness and win the lost to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

The Point Of Pressure
When a person trusts in Christ in faith, whether they realize it or not, they have been enrolled in the “school of faith.” Consequently, as Christians, we never know what may happen next because God, who works all things together for good, uses our trials as tools to promote spiritual growth and maturity.

The Supernatural Man Part 2
Every normal human being is endowed with common sense, a kind of judgement that serves him to make ordinary decisions for his own good and welfare. By contrast, supernatural faith is not granted to everybody indiscriminately, since it is a special gift which Christ has obtained by his death in order to bestow it upon his elect people. It is a divine blessing, unmerited and without which nobody can enter heaven, for by supernatural faith (engendered in us by the mysterious operations of the Holy Spirit) we are united to Christ and enjoy his redemption. This kind of faith, which the Bible recommends, is a gift of God (Philippians 1:29). It originates as one hears the Word of the Gospel, as a seed is sown into the ground: it germinates and takes root and sprouts. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17).

The Vicissitudes of Life: Will you stay with God?
When you worry, you are choosing to be mastered by your circumstances instead of by the truth of God. The vicissitudes and trials of life pale in comparison to the greatness of salvation. Jesus wants you to realize it doesn’t make sense to believe God can save you from eternal hell, but not help you in the practical matters of life. The Apostle Paul reflects a similar desire in Ephesians 1:18-19: "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." When you catch yourself worrying, go back to Scripture and let God open your eyes again.

The Return of The Leper
Our American churches are truly at a crossroads. For the last 40 years or so we’ve been much more like the Pharisees and priests, excluding and marginalizing entire groups of people that we thought God is angry with. But little by little though, the Gospel is at work, in stories like this one, helping us to rightly divide the word of truth.

Fathers and Sons
Fathers are supposed to bless their sons and not curse them. Fathers are supposed to raise up their sons and not tear them down. Fathers give sons two main things for life. Identity and Inheritance. Many issues facing men today is the absence of fathering which has created an orphan spirit and heart. Leaders in business, ministry and home life are ill effected because they have been wounded by fathers or those who are supposed to mentor and guide them. Today is your day to be healed from the wounds inflicted from your father. Let the word of God bring you to a place of forgiveness, wholeness and restoration.

Unblind My Mind
Therefore, by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth, we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

I Won't Be Defiled
When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, 'Hear and understand: not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.' Then His disciples came and said to Him, 'Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?' But He answered and said, 'Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.' Then Peter answered and said to Him, 'Explain this parable to us.' So Jesus said, 'Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.'

Soul Issues
So if you want to fight for the soul that it not be destroyed, and if you want to magnify the glory of God so that it not be belittled, and if you want to say yes to the weight and importance of God in this God-neglecting modern world, then see yourself as an exile from heaven and focus your desires on God so that your hope is in Him and not in this world, and the result will be an emerging beauty of behavior that conquers all slander and finally brings praise to God.

Here at the Table, we hear Jesus’s voice, have our Savior’s ear, and commune with His body. We receive afresh His gospel, respond in faith, and knit our hearts together in the bread and cup we share. And in doing so, we look not only to the past and remember what He’s done, and not only to the present and our growing union with Him but also to the future and the full feast to come. “As often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26).

The Priest in The Pew
There is a responsibility for everyone who receives Christ in their spirit. The common notion is one person preaching to many in the pews.

We all are priests in God's eyes and should function as such.

The Seed of Separation
We are told in Ephesians 4:24 that we must “put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” One of the reasons that biblical separation is not seen or even desired by many is that the New Birth is not viewed in its fullness. What we mean by this is that the New Birth is simply viewed as “salvation,” which is basically sins forgiven and adoption. “I’m no longer on my way to hell, but to heaven; I am no longer under the wrath of God.” Thank God this is true, for the New Birth does bring salvation from sins and deliverance from hell. But it must be seen from a further perspective as well.

The issue of suffering and prosperity in life and their relationship to the righteousness of individuals is one that is both important and complex. What can I expect if I choose to diligently follow God's will in my life? Will my righteousness result in more or less suffering? Will it result in more or less prosperity? We all want to understand, as well as minimize, the amount of suffering in life, and to understand as well the sources and legitimate role of prosperity in life.

The Life of a Prophet
Brother James interviews Prophet Jeremy Caris. Jeremy Caris is the founder and president of Caris Ministries. Since he is called as a prophet and gifted as a teacher, much of his focus involves equipping believers to hear, know, and follow God in their own daily experience. He teaches the foundational truth of the Word with simple clarity while revealing deep things of the spirit in practical ways. He has the unique ability to demystify the supernatural side of a real relationship with a living God and make it an embraceable and accessible reality for all believers. Jeremy has been married to his best friend, Mandy Caris, for seventeen years, and is the proud father of two boys.

Religion Will Kill You... The Kingdom Will Save You
Every other religion in the world is based on man's efforts to reach God. These world religions teach that man must somehow do righteous deeds or perform religious service in order to become good enough for salvation. In order to be saved a person must pray a certain number of times, in a certain manner, facing a certain direction. Or he must wear a particular type of religious garment. Or he must visit a certain religious shrine or temple. Or he must worship in a particular way. Some religions require sacrifice and even the infliction of pain upon a believer in order to become holy in the sight of God. Some extreme religions require adherents to beat themselves with whips or rods to show their devotion to God. Some require pilgrims to crawl on their knees a certain distance in prayer in order to earn righteous points with God. Some religions require worship on Friday; others on Saturday; and others on Sunday. Our God says call on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be SAVED!

There is Room For You
The Bible teaches that Jesus has made peace between sinners and God the Father through THE BLOOD OF HIS CROSS. Notice that Jesus didn't make peace through “the cross”; but rather, through “the blood of His cross.” IT WAS THE BLOOD! Jesus shed His blood while on the cross, and then that physical, literal, precious, blood was taken to Heaven to be “SPRINKLED” upon the Mercy Seat in the heavenly tabernacle. In other words, THERE IS ROOM FOR YOU ON THE CROSS!!!!

Give Me Mercy
God is known to be a God of mercy and grace. Understanding mercy is often difficult for people as we tend to be a generation of “I’ll get him for that” and “I hope they get what they deserve.” Many have developed a nature of harsh criticism and want others to get what they have coming to them and then some. God, however, is merciful to even the worst offenders, sinners, and law-breakers. This means that even though He knows of our guilt, He doesn’t always issue the punishment deserved. To elaborate, the verse in Romans 3:23-24 says “...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Do you know God!
There is a difference between knowing about God and truly knowing God! "Know" is a word in the bible that describes being intimate with someone. It connotes a joining together like when a marriage is consummated. When you "know" someone they are in your business and you are in theirs. God desires for us to know Him the same way He knows us.

Church Hurt & The Vagabond Spirit
Being hurt by the church is not something that happens once in a while. We often find people who have been deeply wounded by the family of God, leaving them worn and exhausted. We continually see leaders who are in conflict within the body of believers, robbed of the joy that Jesus promised. When we examine our own bruised souls, it can make us want to leave the church and even want to “back burner” our God who seems to have allowed it all. The Curse of the Vagabond is found predominantly in the lives of church hoppers, those who reject the ministry of fathers and those who despise the authority of leaders. The Curse of the Vagabond inhibits one from having the ability to BE PLANTED which results in aimless wandering. Indeed it UPROOTS one from the very place of love, ministry and needed expression.

Cover Your Ground
Life is full of uneven terrain. Sometimes our ground is not level because we have to climb mountains or dig ditches. The mountains and ditches may be our doing. It may be because someone else is making us climb or dig. In our spirits, we always long for level ground, an even playing surface, sure-footed living. What's the surface like that you're moving on today? How does it look and feel to you? Are you cruising along the highway of life, coasting downhill or in a ditch? Are you loving the climb or exhausted? Are you suffering from your own doing, or have others got you digging ditches?

Get Your Own Oil
Throughout the Bible, anointing with oil symbolizes consecration to God (as in Exodus 28:41; Luke 4:18; Acts 4:27; 10:38; 2 Corinthians 1:21; Hebrews 1:9). The act of anointing does not, as some claim, automatically confer grace and remit sin. Rather, it is a “means of grace,” which accompanies prayer, for those who believe. Like fasting, anointing is a kind of handmaid of prayer, or an intensifier of prayer — a way to reach beyond our daily patterns in unusual circumstances.

Are You Hungry?
Only those that show up at the table are ready to eat. Our attitude must be one of hunger ready to feed on the life of Christ. If you stay hungry for the things of God then your appetite will always be satisfied by the sustenance of Christ as Life.

All Things Are Possible
If you can believe it you can achieve it. We have heard this statement throughout life's challenges and how true it is. Sometimes what you desire can seem a mere dream of empty wishes. But if you hold fast to the word and make no room for doubt, then all things are possible. The key in the statement is all things are possible....possible for who? only to them that believe!

Christ The Substance of Life
There are many things in the world that people try to draw life from. When we realize that the total essence and embodiment of life is wrapped up in Jesus Christ we will have power to live an overcoming life. We all want substance. Substance has solidity and reality. Isn't that what we all desire? We can find flaky substitutes in almost anything tangible. An off brand product may have a similar look, feel or taste, but it is nothing like the original. When we say substance we mean something that can fill us up and satisfy us. Every part of life has a different aspect that can give us a sense of fulfillment but it is not the true element. When we understand that Jesus Christ is the reality of all things then satisfaction is in our hands. We have the answer! It is him and him alone. The world does not want you to believe the truth of his substance, which is God releasing his total being in the person of Jesus Christ. Join in as we open up the reality of Christ as the substance of Life.

God's Communication System
God has a way of communicating with us. Many people get frustrated because they don't feel that God can speak to them. The primary way God communicates is through his word. Secondarily, when you become a spirit filled believer God communicates through our spirit. You must have the proper organ to receive what God communicates. God is a spirit, therefore his communication is through the spirit and not the mind. Numerous people are disappointed due to trying to access God with their mind and not their spirit. Furthermore your spirit has to be on the same frequency to receive what God speaks. In order for that to happen you must have his spirit dwelling inside your spirit. The only way to have his spirit is to tune your spirit to his channel and frequency. The first step is to repent of your sins and accept the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. Once you receive him into your heart, your spirit which before was dead to God has now been made alive! Now you are ready to hear God speak!
