5 DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 30 December 2016

What a day after Christmas as many are still sleeping after 9 am and I have been up since 6:30am ready the Bible in Malachi to see what it was like before the New Testament. It was a time when God needed to usher in a new area called grace. People had become so used to doing their own things and it became a problem to the masses and not just a few. Only God could restore order, to enable and empower man to live in peace and have good will to empower one another to work for His will not ours. People had become pride full of wickedness like stubble, no good, but used as fertilizer to grow more evil. The sun of righteousness was coming with healing in His wings, to tread down evil ways and save us from sins that crumble our lives as we abide in Him. The Lord wants to rebuke the devourer that destroys the fruit of the land. God wants to restore us as we bring our tithes into the house of the Lord, so the store house will always be full to help others. The Lord wants us to return unto Him, so we can be refreshed daily as we are empowered as we abide in the vine.
So may you see you need for making sure your body-soul and spirit are united in having faith in doing and obeying Gods word and not listening to Satan as man has been doing since time began.
 
 
Here we are in the second day after Christmas and reading Amos who lets us know those who seek God are going to truly live, for they hate evil and love good. They know who establishes good for the purpose of being able to judge. Judgement is needed to make sure we are disciplined to do good and be righteous. We hear the term day of the Lord and Amos refers to it as darkness no light very dark, and is that not what is going on around the world and are we not given to being captive by the enemy with sin? That is the reason God uses the plum line, He is the one in charge of how we build and what we build upon. So, who is in charge of your life is determine by who has the Plum line in His hand? God will build the waste city Jerusalem and no one will pluck Israel out of Godís hands that was given to them.
What is going on now is no different than what happen in the beginning when man wanted to be like god and do whatever he wanted than after it was all over have to hide for they were ashamed. 
We are living in a time when there is no shame in evil for it is entertaining and holds us captive to its charm and excitement and we canít wait for the next page or next thrill of seeing the unbelievable episode. Entertainment is filling many Churches and it works. May we understand the Plum line God uses is His, and He loves us and does not want to see people destroy people. Life is not a game it is a way, truth and life thatís built upon the platform of Gods righteousness and holiness that s pure solid rock. Full of love, mercy and grace that needs discipline in order to be just for all. Remember God is going to judge us according to our works for without works we are dead in our trespasses of sin.
The wages of sin is death, the gift of God is life everlasting, for Godís love, mercy and peace of goodwill to men, is still bringing people out of bondages to accepting abiding in the vine and resting in the out stretched hand of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
3 days after Christmas reading Revelation to catch a glimpse of what is going on in these last days. For we are seeing and reading the word of God and comparing it to the Biblical account of the way, truth and life. We do not know what is happening until the Spirit of God reveals Himself to us, as we travel through our course given by God. God is ready to combat evil just as in the beginning of time and we have to be connected to His source of energy to benefit from His blessing, without becoming embittered. He is gracious to give us peace now and every day, when we are abiding in the vine; Jesus.  God then can give us the ability to hang on to the truth of what is happening in a world of media not proclaiming truth, but what they want truth to be, so a lie is now truth and truth is a lie. Just as the Lord said, to Paul in Romans 1:25. It is so easy to have dementia which fails to give us the understand to know the truth. Just as dementia is very hard to address and cure, so it is with lies, they are hard to see, for they destroy the ability to make wise decisions based on what is good for all.
God gave us all we see to enjoy, so we can benefit from His wonderful works of art, as we stay connected to Him, communicating and listening to His desires.
As Christians, we are in an oven and the heat seems to be turn up, for evil is on the rampage, killing thousands of innocent people around the word, but the fire of the Holy Spirit is cooking and empowering thousands to witness Godís Devine intervention. The closer we get to the return of the Lord for the Church, the greater the manifestations of His hands out stretched still. This is seen where evil of ISIS and the false church is deceiving thousands, yet Godís Spirit is being accepted by many torn by the wickedness around them. That is Gods Spirit being in control as people turn and let Him witness to them of His love, mercy and grace.
Man, was created to achieve his or her potential as we keep on asking, seeking and knocking for Gods will to be done and not wanting our way. Wanting our way is what Adam and Eve wanted in the garden and ever sense we are infected with sins disease, that is rampant and we see it by the bitterness around the world, and God created us with a mind to repent and become a child growing to become more and more like Lord.
So who are you becoming more like God or Satan.
4th day after Christmas I am looking at the 7 Churches of Revelation 2 to 3 to see the ages we have been though as a Church. This is Charles Larkenís writing I like very much for it is so biblical.
1.   Ephesus Rev. 2-1-7 the Church that had forsaken its first love. Backslidden-let go to relaxedn no hold on, or abiding in God, but the false Church
2.   Smyrna Rev. 2:8-11 The Church that would suffer persecution. Like a Bitterness, meaning; Myrrh, associated with death. The time of Nero A D. 64 ending with Diocletian in A.D. 310 to Constantine in A.D. 312
3.   Pergamum Rev. 2:12-17 The Church that needed to repent. Licentious Church, eating things offered to idols, sitting on Satans seat. The Balaam doctrine of committing whoredoms. Pergamos means marriage. From period of A.D. 312 to A.D 606 when Boniface 3rd was crowned.
4.   Tyatira Rev. 2:18-29 The Church that had the false prophets, a lax Church, no works listen to Jazebel a prophetess. Represented by the Papal Church, from A.D. 606 to the reformation in A. D. 1520., Jezebel of the Church of Thyatira. The Woman referred to latter in Revelations.
5.   Sardis Rev 3:1-6 The Church that had fallen asleep. Dead men walking, yet a name to live. Formalistic-ritualistic- form of godliness but no power. The escaping or coming out of was necessary to lie. It was the time of Martin Luther and a number of other reformers protesting against false teaching, tyranny and claims by the Papal dictatorial rule. Martin Luther began about A.D. 1500 to protest, setting in the reformation that opened up the Bible that was chained down.  It lasted from A.D. 1520 to A.D. 1750

Mary full of the Holy Spirit
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 23 December 2016

What a story that changed the world when it is accepted for Mary was a special young lady, that God showed special favor to, as she was taught by parents or relatives their past history, for the world was very much controlled by Kings, that were ruthless and to hear she was going to have a child that was given to binging peace and Good will to man. Satan was going to take a hit as a new dispensation was beginning so everyone was going to be saved by having faith given by Gods loving GRACE. Luke the 2nd chapter tells the story of how she wanted to be comforted and she know doubt wanted to tell someone special to her, for she was a very alert person with lots of feelings, so visits Elisabeth her cousin whom she knew the most. As soon as they came together the babe in Elisabethís womb leaped and she was filled with the Holy Spirit. Do we not need the Holy Spirit in order to live this Christian life, for we all need air to breathe? We now need to know the importance of seeking the fullness of life to achieve our potential and the Holy Spirit is what the Lord wants us all to understand for the Holy Spirit is our life. When the Holy Spirit comes upon a person they know it, for the tongue is activated by God. Elisabeth said, ďMary, you are blessed among women and blessed is your womb and there is a reason you came to me. Blessed are you, for you believe and your performing and it is happeningĒ. Everyone I have seen who has accepted the Lord has changed in behavior and attitude, for it is the Lord that is performing a work in people lives and they begin to perform differently, so here Mary and Elisabeth are both performing as the Lord leads them. We are seeing thousands filled with the Holy Spirit in the Middle East where persecution is the greatest as Radical Muslims are killing Christians. The Holy Spirit empowers one to accept what God has to give His people. Look at Mary as she talks to Elisabeth she begins the most profound statement of the New Testament which is going to usher in the work of Grace, the Lord is establishing a new law, that shows the Lord is giving His body as a living sacrifice, no longer an animal sacrifice but a living Sacrifice that we need to obey .

Maryís words here are known as the Magnificent starting in verse 46 Her soul is magnified by the Lord in her five senses; her imagination was seeing this child as saving the world from dictators, to a person that loved what He created and her memory was able to see reality, He was a ruler, that wanted the best for all He created. Then her Conscience was pure and holy, knowing she was the one to deliver the Christ child, for He was the delivery of all mankind from sin. Her reason was assured by the angels what was going to take place for her affection was already given to wanting God to intervene.

What a Heritage! Continued
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Thursday, 15 December 2016

As I studied the message this Sunday about the Heritage we were born with as a child of the Lord as our Father and Jesus as our savior and the Holy Spirit as our empowerment I see God created us with every thing we need to live for ever, either in heaven or hell, based on what we base our foundation upon, either the Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of this world who is ruled by rules by Satan now it seems.

Our bodies are material that is totally different than all other things the Lord created for we have a moral compass that guides us dependent upon who we trust and obey. If we obey Satan we are guided by the deceiver who plays the game of being like god, but really is the king of the devil and all his imps or demons helping him.  If we obey God we find the ability to trust and obey the Lord and receive heavens reward now and after death. So letís look at our bodies that are going to die at some time. The body has five components we really appreciate Flesh-bones-blood-organs-cells which are alive and have to be cared for. Then we have five senses in the body 1. Sight which we use according to experts 83% of our time, Smell 2%, hearing 11%, taste (Mouth) 3%, and feel or touch 3%. This lets us know that sight is very important to our bodies ability to function.  When you blink your many times protecting your eye from damage and the eye lid is a safety shield, Our ears have little hairs acting like shield, that keep out some of the particle, Our mouths have the ability to shield out anything that does not taste good, and itís the tongue that is so hard to control. Our feeling and touch has skin to protect us from serious infection. So our bodies have built in safety parts.

foolishness to him. Nor can he know them, because they are spiritual discerned. Then in Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV)
19  Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21  envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. So you see the body has the potential to be evil which is so true for all have sinned and fall short of the kingdom of God and the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life and the heart of man is desperately wicked who can know it!

Then our Souls Phyche Nephesh-Natural 1. Imagination

2. Conscience   3.  Memory    4. Reason    5. Affection.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
14  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 3:1-3 (NKJV) 1  And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3  for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 1 Corinthians 2:10-11 (NKJV) 10  But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
11  For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God
. Are you seeing the need to make sure you know how to handle your spirits according to God, will and not your own? It is impossible to control our souls imagination, memory, conscience, reason and affections with out our spirits being connected with the Lord as we abide in the Lord.
This is the reason we need the Spirit of God breathing in us new life. So letís look at the Spirits Pheuma so we know who we are and never forget who we are and where we are going after death.

Then Spirit Pheuma  1. Faith.  2. Hope 3. Reverence. 4. Worship

5. Prayer. Galatians 5:22-26 (NKJV) 22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23  gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24  And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26  Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. 1 Corinthians 2:12-16 (NKJV)
12  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13  These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14  But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15  But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16  For "who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

Lord help us to mediate upon your word, so we can hide it in our hearts so we do not sin against you in our bodies, souls or spirits. Then when one reads Romans 8: 1-13 you realize the weakness of the bodies fleshly desire and the need to put on the armor of Gods, so we are able to fight against the enemy of our bodies, spirits and souls.
