I Could Have Had a Romans 8

You know that commercial on TV, it talks about that vegetable juice that gives you a boost in energy? It’s called V-8 Juice because it has supposedly 8 vegetables in its ingredients. So in Romans 8, there are a couple super natural ingredients that give it its extraordinary power. Here is a list of the ingredients:
  1. No condemnation
  2. Ability to walk in the Spirit
  3. Freedom from the law of sin and death
  4. Righteousness fulfilled in us
  5. Having a mind of life and peace
  6. Being led by the Spirit of God
  7. Being the sons of God
  8. Possessing the spirit of adoption
  9. Being the children of God
  10. Being the heirs of God
  11. Suffering with God
  12. Being glorified by God
  13. Being delivered from the bondage of corruption
  14. Living in glorious Liberty
  15. Having the Spirit help us in our infirmity
  16. Knowing that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
  17. Foreknown by God
  18. Predestined by God
  19. Conformed to His image
  20. Justified by God
  21. Glorified by God
  22. Freely given all things
  23. Never separated from God or His love
  24. More than conquerors
So if you’re feeling a little down and your spiritual energy is a little low, it’s not a vegetable juice that’s going to turn on your attitude but rather another supplement called Romans 8. If you go through these 24 Supernatural Divine supplements provided for us by Jesus through the Holy Spirit, you will be able to deal with the daily doldrums that seem to attack and attach themselves to believers when on their mission.

The Geography of You

God is a Map Maker

God is a map maker. It comes naturally to Him since He’s a father, and all fathers attempt to provide maps for their children to follow.

The maps that God gives to us have two purposed destinations: first, to lead us to Him and second, to the destiny He’s creating for us. John 14:3 “For I go to prepare a place for you.”

How does God go about this map-making process? It begins with an attitude shift.

The scripture says, “There is a river that makes glad the city of our God.” That river is the fear of the Lord.

What is the fear of the Lord about?
The fear of the Lord isn’t a simple pedestrian topic but it is necessary to understand that without it, God’s plans for our lives will be a difficult process to sustain and impossible to realize without it.

Just consider the thief on the cross; I don’t think that his encounter with God through Christ Jesus was his first encounter with God. That cross was simply a roadblock that God erected as a final point of confrontation. It clearly wasn’t the first chance. I am sure this thief became a thief because he didn’t understand how to pursue the plans of God. God says I know the plans that I have for you, plans for your success.

Most likely the thief on that cross didn’t like or understand the way that it appeared God was leading him. He thought he had a better way to go about living his life, which brought him to this lonely cross on this lonely hill 2000 years ago.

Frankly, we are all like that thief who believed he knew better than God.

The fear of the Lord is the attitude adjustment that we adopt toward God and toward ourselves.

Proverbs 14:26 and Proverbs 14:27 present two of the great benefits of fearing God.

Proverbs 14:26 states, “In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence, and his children shall have a place of refuge.”
Proverbs 14:27 states, “The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.”

All of God’s maps begin with God’s perspective. You can’t get to where God is bringing you until you begin to see what God is doing with you and through you.

Your salvation is not simply your ‘get-out-of-jail’ card. Salvation is intended to provide those around you with the evidence of a map that is true and reliable. Proverbs 14:25 says, A true witness delivers souls, but a deceitful witness speaks lies.

So now we can understand how the scriptures work together to demonstrate not only God’s objective but God’s process. It’s the fear of the Lord that produces confidence: what is that confidence in? John 14:3 states, “And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may also be.”

Our fearing God is actually our perspective based upon Who He says He is and what He promises to do.

Our attitudes determine our actions; that is why the mindsets that God gives to each one of us is so critical.

During our last meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, one of the takeaways from the meeting was that all delays from God produce transformation.

The purpose of delay is transformation.

Wisdom is the capacity to endure the delay of process for the purpose of transformation.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. What does it mean to “fear the Lord” and why is this fear the beginning of wisdom?

The fall of Man began with a delay, when it ‘appeared’ that God was holding out on Eve. And the salvation of man ends with an unexpected arrival of a Savior.

That is why prayer is the process by which we learn Who God is and how He wants to live through us in relationship. That relationship is Destiny. Delay didn’t stop Joshua and Caleb and it won’t stop you and me. What comes out of all this delay is a confidence (Proverbs 14:26). This is the wisdom that could not come through the Halls of Education or the classrooms of a seminary.

It was the fear of the Lord that propelled Joshua to apprehend the Promises of God. Those seven promises articulated in Joshua chapter 1 are the basis of every New Testament believer’s faith.

There are two sources of wisdom; one is through following and learning from God. The second one is an anointing that God releases on an individual for the purpose of demonstration and relation.

The purpose of all wisdom is legacy.

The Power of Mountain Time

Before Joshua was commissioned for the mission, he spent additional time on the mountain in the presence of God. Before we take any mountain, we will be required to spend time on the mountain.

Prayer should result in our deeper sense of humility. Humility is God’s protocol for intercession, because humility is attractive to God. If you want God involved, cultivate a culture of humility. Also, humility also creates communion.

Without humility, we will always resist the vision that God has for our lives.

“Fundamental to the language of the in-between is an understanding of how the culture we live in predetermines the categories we use to read our world. American poet e.e. cummings said that, ‘If you have something to hide, hide it in the sun.’ In other words, the things we assume and take for granted are the very things we can lose the ability to to see. This is why relationships fall apart if couples take each other for granted,” stated Alan Roxburgh.

Consequently, it is very difficult to understand and see how the culture around us is producing a blindness to what it is producing.

Alan Roxburgh says, “Imagine trying to teach a goldfish the meaning of water, which would be almost impossible to do. When something lives inside an environment as pervasive as water it loses its capacity to see its presence. The very thing that gives life becomes invisible, it’s not seeing because it’s everywhere. Culture is to humans what water is to fish. Most of the time we don’t think about our culture, it’s just the conventional Common Sense way of living.” Missional Map Making page 44

“This refusal to acknowledge the sea change all around us is precisely what is happening in our churches and among our leaders when we assume that our crisis can be fixed by working harder at things like improving worship, better preaching, more effective discipleship, and more passionate spirituality.” p 42.

In-Sync with the Spirit

Spiritual Timing
Consistently throughout scripture there are certain geographies associated with individual callings. Abraham was called to Canaan, Moses was called to Egypt, David was called to Israel, Jesus was called to the Jews and Paul was called to the Gentiles.
When we’re not in God’s will, it can be that we are displaced or “geographically challenged.” It often occurs that a geographic displacement will be concomitant with loss of time, opportunity and relationships. There is “our time” and then there is “God’s time.” God’s timing is called Karios, our timing is Chronos. Chronis is sequential, whereas Kairos is providential. God gave us the Holy Spirit to help us with our timing.
Jesus had a keen sense of God’s timing. These are some of the verses, most of which are found in the Gospel of John, that evidence pointing to the Kairos timing of Jesus and in other places.
1. John 7:6 Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always here.”
2. John 7:8 “You go up to the feast. I am not going up to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come.”
3. John 13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
4. John 7:30 So they were seeking to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come.
5. John 2:4 And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.”
6. John 17:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you.
7. John 8:20 These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.
8. Matthew 26:18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’”
9. Ecclesiastes 3:1-15 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
10. Psalm 102:13 You will arise and have pity on Zion; it is the time to favor her; the appointed time has come.
11. Acts 1:7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.
So as we conclude 2017, let us ask God for His timing for the rest of the year and for 2018.

2018 – Doorway to Freedom

Everybody wants a road map. It seems, though, that as fast as one road map appears to get you to where you want, there’s another crossroad you will be forced to face to get you to the next stage of the next level of your own life. 2018 will have its own unique and distinct roads to travel for all of us. Some of them will be traveled with others; and other roads we will be forced to travel alone.

But whatever road map we choose or even chart ourselves, it will require some basic spiritual principles that will keep us moving forward even in the midst of setbacks, distractions and comebacks:

1. Prudence – the discipline of prudence combines knowledge, timing and purpose. Prudence without the Holy Spirit is legalism.

  1. The Prudent man conceals knowledge, and knows where and how he should use that knowledge. Proverbs 12:23
  2. The Prudent man knows how to use knowledge. Proverbs 13:16
  3. Prudence in action results and self-control. Proverbs. 14:18
  4. Prudence is a condition of the heart. Proverbs 16:21
  5. A Prudent wife is from the Lord. Proverbs 19:14
  6. Prudence gives insight and foresees evil. Proverbs 22:3
  7. Prudence without humility is pride. Matthew 11:25

2. Diligence – Proverbs 13:4 the soul of the sluggard craves and has nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.

3. Vigilance – to be awake, not to be sleepy. 1 Peter 5:8 the word Vigilant comes from the Greek word Gregorio. It is used 20 times in the New Testament, specifically to be ready in every moment to resist the devil. James 4:7

4. Vision – write the vision. A vision that is unwritten is a plan that is unrealized. Habakkuk 2:2. Where there is no vision the people perish. Proverbs 29:18

5. Purpose – working together. Romans 8:28. Purpose is also directional; objectionable which means to have specific objectives; and relational, having to do with others who are to be affected by the actions undertaken. All of God’s plans when not only action-oriented but they were people-directed.

6. Wisdom – Wisdom is cognition in 3 realms: the mind, the spirit and the body.

7. Knowledge – My people perish for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6 What you don’t know is fatal. Working harder without working smarter is presumption and risks all the success you have gained thus far.

Freedom 2018

Governments don’t free. God is the only one who sets an individual free. Free Rhythm is a byproduct of a relational life with the truth. Jesus said in John chapter 8 “The truth shall make you free.”

Since the truth makes you free, ignorance makes you and keeps you a slave. We need to be not only educated but also elevated by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Tony Evans writes in his book, The Battle is the Lord’s, that Satan attempts to manipulate what appears to be the truth with several different strategies. We have all encountered these on some level or another. Here is his list:

Relativism This is the lie that the truth is ever-changing, and always on the move. What can be true today may not be true tomorrow.

Subjectivism Subjectivism says that truth is strictly personal. It follows the same line, well that may be true for you but it’s not true for me. Truth is not a matter of personal choice.

Empiricism Empiricism says that truth resides only in what we can see and feel and measure. Truth depends on evidence and data that you can gather and evaluate.

Existentialism This says that truth is found in what you can experience. The only thing that matters to individuals who are existentialist is what is happening at the moment.

Rationalism Rationalism is all about the right formula and the right processes. This is clearly the science of science trumps all other conflicting data. Equations formulas systems. We can explain everything.

Phenomenalism This states that if something appears to be a phenomenon or out of the normal course of events it can be definitely true. Phenomenalism is replete with counterfeits. Remember the basis for all counterfeits is the authentic. With the powers of phenomenalism is the fact that it stands out it’s out of the ordinary. We’re all looking for something which stands out. The difference between a phenomenon and a miracle is ultimately a phenomenon is explainable by either fax or by the fiction that it presents. A miracle on the other hand basically is that which is impossible becomes possible through no work on the part of the individual but simply by an expression and manifestation of the Divine godhead, the trinity.

Pantheism This is basically paganism but modernized to look like it’s something different and new and very relevant. An example of pantheism is Scientology.

Pragmatism The whole idea behind pragmatism is that if it works in must be true.

You may ask, “How can you be so sure 2018 is a doorway year?” To which I say, “If Jesus said, ‘I am the Door,’ I am walking in!”

The Dichotomy of Weapons

I am rereading Tony Evan’s book on Spiritual Warfare, and it reminded me of the dichotomy of weaponry that we come against in the spirit realm.
I think that when we stop treating them as GIFTS and start acting like they are accessories that we tack onto our spiritual wardrobe, we forget how freely they function. These are the gifts of the Spirit.
Tony Evans writes about the weapons of Satan
  1. The Weapons of Power & Wealth. Tony Evans writes, “Did you know that the devil can give you lots of stuff.” Evans supports this by what is stated in Luke 4:6 where Satan tells Jesus that I give it to whomever I wish, meaning Satan can give people power, wealth, friends, and fun on a huge scale, Tony Evans writes. That says to me we shouldn’t judge our relationship with God based upon the things that we get and the things that we have.
  2. The Weapon of Deception. Everything Satan has and does is based upon a deception of some sort and maintained by a “deceptional” strategy. He is so gifted in this area that he is called the Father of Lies.
  3. The Weapon of Adversity. If he doesn’t trick you with wealth or power or even with the lies, he will then resort to the weapon of adversity. Tony Evans writes that it all comes back to the fact that we are in a war with a powerful enemy. In the Book of James, we are told that by submitting to God and resisting the enemy, we can push forward.
  4. The Weapon of Accusation. If Satan can’t get to you with money, wealth, deception, or opposition, he’ll then try another strategy, the weapon of accusation. Remember, Satan is called the Accuser of the Brethren. He has a boatload of stock accusations that he uses to attack the integrity and the identity of the believer.
  5. The Weapons of the Flesh and Expectation. Satan understands about the nature of man. Back in the garden it was Eve before she had even fallen, her desire for the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil caused her to make and take the fruit of that tree and violate God’s plan. We all are living this life based upon the information that produces the resources that we need to survive. But there are those events that seem to distract and contort the way things appear to be. Right after Jesus was baptized and told by His Father that He was His beloved Son; the Holy Spirit led Him into the wilderness. I think there’s a good parallel for all of us. Even after a great spiritual Victory, if we encounter a desert, it may not be the devil; it may just be the Father continuing with our personal development program. We are blindsided by this disappointment and ask “What happened?” Jesus was fasting for 40 days, and then all of a sudden the devil shows up and tells Him or actually suggests to Him that He turn the stones into a meatball hero. Based upon this encounter, we can understand that survival is not goal number one, obedience is. We must always be reliant upon God to provide all of our needs according to His riches and glory. Cain and Esau, both, were very, very successful providers, but it was that success that became their impediment to knowing God as Jehovah Jireh.
But all of these weapons of the dark kingdom are counterfeits of the weapons that God has given to each one of us.
The Weapons of Our Warfare
Satan will use his weapons of money, power and titles to achieve his objectives – our deception. But God has given us His power to tread upon serpents and scorpions. These weapons are best manifested through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. David is a classic example of God using a rock and a slingshot to defeat that well-tooled soldier, Goliath. And remember how God used the rod of Moses to deliver the people across the Red Sea. And then there’s Solomon whose wisdom was able to discern which mother was the true birth mother. And then there is also the five loaves and two fish, and the six urns that Jesus filled with wine at the wedding of Cana.
The Weapon of Revelation
Whereas Satan relies upon the power of deception, the Holy Spirit is moving in each one of our lives through the power of revelation. Revelation gives us an understanding in real-time of the character and nature of our condition. Paul reminds us in 1st Corinthians 3:16, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God.”
We are Overcomers
Just because we are saved doesn’t mean that we will not have to navigate the weapons of opposition. If you recall Jesus right after he fed the 5000 with the loaves and the fishes, placed the disciples in a boat at night and required that they cross the sea. Without a doubt, Jesus understood that he was putting them in a difficult position. Not only was it dark but they were also about to hit a big storm. Jesus knows about the storms that we will hit in our lives. He doesn’t always remove the storms, but He does provide us with the tools necessary to sail through them. So in Psalm 23 it states, :Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.” Opposition is sometimes a good barometer that you are walking IN the will of God, not OUT OF IT.
 We are Justified
Perhaps one of the greatest assets that we can have in the midst of spiritual warfare is justification. When Satan is accusing us, it is a good indication that he (satan) is trying to get us to act like we are not justified. In Romans chapter 8:30-1, Paul writes, “Moreover whom he did predestinate, then he also called, and whom he called, them he also justified, and whom he justified, those he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us who can be against us?”
We are Accepted
For all the condemnation Satan throws away, Jesus Christ has provided for us Eternal Acceptance with the Father. This is not based solely upon our performance, but rather upon Calvary. In Ephesians 1:6 it says, “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he has made us accepted in the Beloved.” Acceptance is God’s gift to us. After the fall Adam was hiding from God. But it was God Who searched him out and found him. When Adam heard the Lord, he was convicted and afraid, but when the Lord found Adam He provided the covering that Adam needed for his nakedness.
Ephesians chapter 1 provides us a check list of the blessings that God has for each one of us, we are blessed, chosen, predestinated, accepted, redeemed, abounding with wisdom, we are known of God, He is giving us an inheritance, and finally we are sealed with the Holy Spirit.
I highly recommend the books by Graham Cooke Developing Your Prophetic Gifting and by John Eckhardt’s The Prophet’s Manual.

The Season of Storms

John Chapter 13 is not one of my warm and cozy little chapters. Betrayal, disappointment and crucifixion are not my idea of a good time on a Friday night.

But there are huge lessons that Jesus wants to teach us here. I think the first lesson is that he understood the season he was entering was different than the season he was in. Too often we are looking to maintain those blessed and anointed seasons when we feel like we are winning every battle and are in control to last forever. But they never do.

We need the Holy Spirit not only to teach us and to show us but also to lead us to stay in agreement with what heaven is doing, even when it feels like we are going in the wrong way.

Listen, just look at all the things that are happening in our world today: the catastrophes, the hurricanes, the fires, the dissension, the craziness in politics, it’s all coming to a head. If we think that we are going to argue and negotiate God or others into agreeing with our point of view, we are mistaken.

A Season of Wrestling
We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness in high places.

There is a sports brand of attire called Under Armour and I think in some ways it points to what the Holy Spirit wants us to be wearing which is called Inner Armor not Under Armour. The Inner Armor is the conversations of Heaven that take place in our heart. It states and Proverbs 4:23, guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. We need Inner Armor on our inner chambers of our heart. That is the place that the Holy Spirit dwells.

Tony Evans talks about the definition of a stronghold, and he says, fortress or stronghold is a mindset that holds you hostage. It makes you believe that you are hopelessly locked into a situation that you are powerless to change. That’s when you hear people saying I can’t, I can’t, I can’t… every believer has new data that he is expected to live by, but many of us are still living by the old data that will not be erased completely until we get to heaven. Even though we are on our way to heaven, we are still being programmed by the enemy in some areas. That’s why Paul had to write this in 2nd Corinthians 10:4-6:

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”

We need heaven’s wisdom.

Wisdom is the organization of information through divine revelation to effect a divine outcome by faith and obedience. Tony Evans writes, “This is the question we always face: are we going to use human or divine methods?”

All of life is a war for wisdom and consequently, James addresses this daily battle in his epistle, James 1:5-8:

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

James continues to explain the process further in verse 12: “Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”

James is warning us to stand vigilant against operating with a double-mindset – which is when we are operating by two different sources of data concurrently.

Change of Seasons, a Change in Perspective

Understanding a season requires more than a calendar. It is not all about a temperature change. There are other forces at work. The activities of each season reflect its function.

Jesus understood this better than anyone else in Scripture, and consequently, He offers to us an opportunity to learn from Him.

John Chapter 13 clearly shows that this is a period of time when Jesus’s ministry takes a significant and severe turn that most who were following Him did not expect.

Everyone was expecting a complete break-out and breakthrough of Jesus’s ministry onto the scene to the degree that they even expected the overthrow of the Roman government to occur.

But what did Jesus do?

First, He didn’t continue in the old model of miracles, raising of the dead, healings and feedings. So when Satan comes at Jesus, He didn’t begin to battle Satan on the terms and at the level that Satan was engaging Him.

The book that I’m reading by Tony Evans is helping me get a grasp on the times that we are living in.

Tony Evans writes that “the whole world lies in Satan’s power and we have to recognize that he exerts influence over the world’s leaders and structures. Once we understand this principle, we realize the answer to all those lies much deeper than just electing the right person to office. That’s certainly important, but there is a bigger battle going on here. Until we begin to trace our individual family, church and societal problems back to their spiritual source, Satan will continue to take spiritual POWs [prisoners of war] in bunches.”

“You may feel that Satan has taken you prisoner in one or more areas of your life. Your problems may go all the way back to childhood in the form of an abusive parent. You may be repeating destructive patterns in your family that were present at your birth.”

“Whatever the case, you may have been a prisoner of war so long that you think and act like a POW. Identifying the source of attack is one important step toward your liberation. Another is to find out how he attacks us.” P.82

“… if your problem, your struggle, your need is induced and orchestrated by your spiritual enemy, your flesh can’t win the fight. Unless you choose a spiritual response, all the time, effort, and resources you spent trying to fix the problem will ultimately be a waste of time, a band-aid on the situation.”

“And if your battle is a spiritual battle, it needs a spiritual cure. You don’t fight cancer with skin lotion. You don’t fight a brain tumor by taking two aspirin and lying down. Those kinds of problems demand another kind of help. So do spiritual problems.” P.83

So now think a little bit about what happened with Joshua and the walls of Jericho. God had them walking around the walls of Jericho for 6 straight days. Not talking not saying a word but walking around the whole place. I think part of that exercise by God was to begin to cause them to exercise a disciplined mind in their throat life.

Truly the battle is in the mind and if we manage our minds, we will manage our outcomes. It says in Proverbs, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” Jesus wants us to begin to think His thoughts to begin to see His outcomes and also to begin to act in concert with His timing.

If Jesus began to retaliate against the Pharisees at the time, the Romans at the time, and even other religious groups at the time, He would have missed His divine appointment and destiny. Jesus had a place to go, He had something to do, and He and the Father were in agreement on this thing. We need to have our assignments nailed down, in more ways than one. We have to be unmovable.

This may take a little doing because the force that has been brought against you didn’t start 20 minutes ago, it may have started 20 years ago.

John Chapter 13 is not one of my warm & cozy little chapters. Betrayal, disappointment and crucifixion are not my idea of a good time on a Friday night.
