Acts 20:24 (NASB95): “But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God." #reachingnewheightsinjesus

Subject: Calm down already

Acts 19:36 (NASB95): “So, since these are undeniable facts, you ought to keep calm and to do nothing rash." <br>If you were actually as sure as you say think you are you wouldn't be getting all worked up about it. Just saying...

Subject: growing

So pleased to be a part of a church that values living for Jesus. I particularly enjoy the fact that I am growing. We take the time to talk to one another about what the Bible says and what it means and what we should do about it. I'm sometimes wrong and my brothers work with me to help me get right. That's what reaching new heights in Jesus is all about. That's the church I believe in and I get to be a part of it. I'm pleased. <br>#reachingnewheightsinjesus

Subject: free speech and civil liberties

Saw a post comparing vax to seat belt laws. Seat belt laws were resisted. In fact there are still those today who choose not to wear them. They may well be constitutionally unsound.<br><br> Of course, the right to speak against them and against any government actions IS definitely protected by the constitution. Cutting back civil liberties is a slippery slope. Those who might want to control others are empowered by each step in that direction. Ultimately, the cliff of a failed experiment in democracy looms ahead.<br> <br> Government is in power to do what's right regardless of what people want but our system provides for certain checks and balances so that that power does not get misused. Plainly put, should anyone ever be forced (or even persecuted if they choose not to) to accept a medical treatment of any kind?<br><br> If you are right, win people over. It's true that distrust of the government is at all time highs again and there is a question whether people just want the treatments to work so badly that they have bought in. At the same time there is a question if people are just resisting out of a spirit of rebellion. Regardless of whether either of those two things is true the right to speak out for or against is protected under the constitution. <br>Opinions are private property and free speech is a golden asset of our society.<br> <br>The crucible of public consideration is more valuable than the decision making process of elected politicians and while we live under their (our elected) law we live in real life where real, sometimes difficult decisions, are made. <br>Make up your own mind. Stand by your decision. Deliberate without the governance of God at your own peril. Live fully in Christ and He will keep an hedge of protection around you whichever way you choose. <br>#reachingnewheightsinjesus

Subject: Safety in only Jesus

Right before the flood waters rushed in and the rain fell, Noah and his family were shut in the ark. Right before all people were swept away in horrible waters Noah and his family were safely tucked into the ark. <br>Pray that you and your family will be placed in safety just like this before the destruction comes in like a flood. <br><br>Matthew 24:37_39<br><br>37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.<br><br>38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,<br><br>39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.<br><br>That last part said they "knew not." What didn't they know? I believe they didn't know that the gospel was really true. They may have even said they believe in God but never seriously took the time to put their belief into existence.<br><br>John 14:12<br> <br>Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Subject: Healing for our land.

Being born again is like plowing down a field of bad fruits and crops and planning in that field new crops. These crops are our goals and our desires. When this happens people who thought they knew us before won't recognize us anymore because our hopes and our desires will not be like theirs anymore because our goals and our dreams are what drives our decisions and choices and behaviors. Jesus is the root that gives the nectar and nutrients for the different crops and desires in the field of our hearts. If you have Jesus then there will be healing in the harvesting of those desires. He is the maple syrup for our souls.<br> Sorry that we have hurt you Lord Jesus and that we have caused you grief, everything You have chose for us was only for our own good and our well being. Please restore our broken and parched lands.

Subject: Inheritance of the Saints.

"The legacy and the inheritance"<br><br>Colossians 2:14, "having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross."<br><br>We've been given power and authority over sin and death! We've been given power over death in other people so that we "can" command sickness and death to leave them seeing that Jesus has nailed all our debt to His cross and He is the fulfillment of the animal sacrifice. Fulfilling the fact that we have been set free from sin and death and are now filled with life and we are given power and authority over sin and death. Unclean Spirits causing ailments and sickness in other people which are a form of death are able to feel and sense our freedom from sin and death and our authority and power against it and this shakes that demonic spirit to its core causing it to fear the power and authority that the Lord Jesus has given to us over sin and death. <br>This is what eternal life looks like. This stuff is what eternal life consists of. Who in their right mind wouldn't want this power? Who in their right mind wouldn't want this freedom? This freedom has to do with faith and it's always been about faith and trust in the son of God. that's why the Bible says in the book of John chapter 1, "to as many as received Him(Jesus) to them He has given the 'right' and the 'power' to become the sons and daughters of God. To become a son and daughter of God you must trust in the one unique Son of God, the Lord Jesus. The bible says that Jesus is eternal life and He is the light of life, and He is the resurrection from the dead. He's the power that sets us free from the law of sin and death. When somebody goes to command death to leave somebody else's body and yet they themselves are still under the power of condemnation and death then that spirit pretty much laughs at them because they're not walking in the freedom that the Lord Jesus paid for. Somebody can be so much of a Christian on the outside but on the inside the power of condemnation, sin, and death is still at work in their mortal body because they're not walking in the faith in the type of trust that the Bible commands to believe and trust 100% that they've been freed from sin and death because of the blood of Jesus. <br>We usually hear the opposite taught about this, people usually say that 'anybody' can do a miracle and still not be of God. The opposite true too when saying, "anybody can act like they are of God and still be held in sin and deaths power."<br> Sin and guilt and shame all works together in the power of death. And this is why Jesus said you must be born again because when you're born again you're set free from all the past shame guilt and the power of death and sin. Your a 'new' creation and you're able to release yourself fully from that death and able to receive fully the life of the Lord Jesus that he has to give. this is why the Bible says that those who are born again are able to laugh at the days ahead they're able to laugh at Satan when he tries to trip them up as well. Being born again is a process like a baby being conceived, or like a grain of wheat falling to the ground.

Subject: He did it for us.

Everything God has done was done for us. To teach us and show us God's heart. Every time Jesus healed it was for us. Every time He rebuked people it was for our learning and understanding.<br><br>Deliver us Lord from walking close to the edge. Let us preach to the edge and beyond. Let us preach freedom to the captives and peace to those who are far from you. Let us instruct in compassions and speak life to dead bones.
