The Positioning Of The Corrupt, The Pure &
The Word!
     We Bless You and Your Family and Lives in Jesus Name!  May The Seed of This Word Be Planted Deep Within You and We Believe That You Have Eyes To See, Ears to Hear and A Heart To Receive God's Word in Jesus Name!
     Every month, as you know, Dewayne and I pray and ask The Master what He would have us write to you.  What is His Message for His Bride?  What does The Lord want to tell Her and all that read this Seed of JCM's Monthly Teaching Letter?  As our Faithful Lord always does, He spoke to us this Month TWO WORDS . . . . (Just two little words!)  And The Words He spoke and confirmed to us was "corruption" and "purity."  So, to be perfectly honest, I immediately began thinking of our government when He confirmed to me the word, "corruption."  I began my research into that word "corruption" and began sharing my finding with Dewayne.  I also shared with Dewayne how I thought about our government in the United States when we received that Word, "corruption."  Then The Master ministered through Dewayne and spoke, "This Word is not about our government . . . it is about The Church!"  I was so surprised at first!  Then after praying and sitting before The Lord and listening, He confirmed that was exactly what He wanted us to minister in this Teaching.  Please read the Word in this Letter from beginning to end.  Thank you!
     The word "corrupt" or "corruption" when used as an adjective literally means, "utterly broken."  "Something that was once WHOLE is NOT ANYMORE."  When one looks up the word, "corruption" to see where it is in The Bible, we find it in many scriptures.  Three verses that have the word "corrupt" or "corruption" in them and have three different Hebrew words describing these words are the following: 
"Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways." Genesis 6:11-12 (NIV) 
     In the Hebrew these words are (OT:7843) shachath (shaw-khath'); a primitive root; to decay, i.e. (causatively) ruin (literally or figuratively): Batter, cast off, corrupt (-er, thing), destroy (-er, -uction), lose, mar, perish, spill, spoiler, utterly, waste.  The next scripture that shows us another Hebrew word for "corrupt" or "corruption" is:
"And the king defiled the high places east of Jerusalem, south of the Mount of Corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the abominable [goddess] of the Sidonians, for Chemosh the abominable god of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abominable [god] of the Ammonites." 2 Kings 23:13 (AMP)
     In the Hebrew the word "corruption" is (OT:4889) mashchiyth (mash-kheeth'); destructive, literally (specifically a snare) or figuratively (corruption): (to) destroy (-ing), destruction, trap.  And yet another scripture from The Bride thas has an additional Hebrew word to describe "corrupt" or "corruption" is: 
"A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." Matthew 7:18 (KJV) 
     The Hebrew word used here is sapros (sap-ros') (NT:4550) rotten, i.e. worthless (literally or morally): bad, corrupt.  And when looking up this word that God spoke to us to write to you about in the Webster's Dictionary we find, Corruption - Dishonest or illegal behavior especially by powerful people (such as government officials or police officers):  The act of corrupting someone or something, Something that has been changed from its original form.  In the On line Dictionary it defines as, impairment of integrity, virtue, or moral principle: depravity, decay, decomposition, inducement to wrong by improper or unlawful means (as bribery), a departure from the original or from what is pure or correct.  Example:  Changing the law = LAWLESSNESS.  And in the World English Dictionary we find the meaning, Alteration, as of a manuscript.  An altered form of a word.  

      Now, The Thesaurus explains "corruption" by the words, abandoned, adulterated, altered, bent, contaminated, crooked, decayed, defiled, dishonest, distorted, doctored, falsified, fraudulent, infected, polluted, putrid, rotten, shady, tainted, wickedness.  And to my amazement when looking up so much on the word "corruption" I found in the Thesaurus the antonyms (or opposite) for the word "corruption" is "to be Honest, trustworthy, upright, purify (pure)!"  (Which is the other word God spoke to us for this Teaching!)  Praise You, Lord!
     I know that sounds like a crazy question!  But let's look at what The Bible tells us, "And the Pharisees and scribes kept asking [Jesus], Why do Your disciples not order their way of living according to the tradition handed down by the forefathers [to be observed], but eat with hands unwashed and ceremonially not purified? 6 But He said to them, Excellently and truly [so that there will be no room for blame] did Isaiah prophesy of you, the pretenders and hypocrites, as it stands written: These people [constantly] honor Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far distant from Me. 7 In vain (fruitlessly and without profit) do they worship Me, ordering and teaching [to be obeyed] as doctrines the commandments and precepts of men. 8 You disregard and give up and ask to depart from you the commandment of God and cling to the tradition of men [keeping it carefully and faithfully]. 9 And He said to them, You have a fine way of REJECTING [thus THWARTING and NULLIFYING and DOING AWAY with] the commandment of God  in order to keep your tradition (your own human regulations)!" Mark 7:5-9 (AMP)
     In the New International Version (NIV) of Mark 7:5-9 it states, "So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, "Why don't your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?" 6 He replied, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.' 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions. 9 And he continued, "You have a fine way of SETTING ASIDE THE COMMANDS OF GOD in order to observe your own traditions!"
     The New Living Translation (NLT) of Mark 7:5-9 tells us, "So the Pharisees and teachers of religious law asked him, "Why don't your disciples follow our age-old tradition? . . . 6 Jesus replied, "You hypocrites!  Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 7 Their worship is a farce, for they TEACH MAN-MADE IDEAS as commands from God.' 8 For you IGNORE GOD'S LAW and SUBSTITUTE YOUR OWN TRADITION." 9 Then he said, "You skillfully sidestep God's law in order to hold on to your own tradition." 
Mark 7:13 IN MANY TRANSLATIONS gives us the answer to the question; "Can anything cancel or void The Word of God?"  Let's deeply look at Mark 7:13 and see what God says. 
In the (NIV) "Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that." 
In the (AMP) "Thus you are nullifying and making void (worthless) and of no effect [the authority of] the Word of God through your tradition, which you [in turn] hand on. And many things of this kind you are doing."
In the (KJV) "Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye." 
In the (ASV) "making void the word of God by your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do."
In the (NLT) "And so you cancel the word of God in order to hand down your own tradition. And this is only one example among many others."
In the (NLV) "You are putting away the Word of God to keep your own teaching. You are doing many other things like this."
In the (NCV) (New Century Version) "By your own rules, which you teach people, you are rejecting what God said.  And you do many things like that."
In the (NOG) (Names of God Bible) "Because of your traditions you have destroyed the authority of God's word. And you do many other things like that."
In the (ERV) (Easy To Read Version) "So you are teaching that it is not important to do what God said. You think it is more important to follow those traditions you have, which you pass on to others. And you do many things like that."
     If a Body of Believers, or People of God choose to believe in THEIR OWN WAYS INSTEAD OF WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS IT IS OPERATING IN MAN'S TRADITIONS!  If The Bible says that there IS HEALING and PROSPERITY FOR THE BRIDE OF CHRIST (and it does) and it is taught that God is the one bringing sickness on people, and that God doesn't want us to be blessed financially . . . that is TRADITION, NOT BIBLE! 
The Bible says that Jesus took stripes on His back for our healing! (1 Peter 2:24) And, "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:4-5) He took our griefs and sorrows and sickness so we would not have to carry them!  HE CARRIED THEM!  We CHOOSE to carry them and speak that we have them . . . over and over and over! 
The Bible says, "You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God." 2 Corinthians 9:11 (NIV)  "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich." 2 Corinthians 8:9 (NIV) 
The Bible says, "So what shall I do?  I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding." 1 Corinthians 14:15 (NIV)  In Mark 1:7-8 (NIV) "And this was his message: "After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." The Bible says in Isaiah 28:11 (NASB) "Indeed, He will speak to this people through stammering lips and a foreign tongue,"  Also in Acts 10:45-48, "The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles. 46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God . . . Then Peter said, 47 "Surely no one can stand in the way of their being baptized with water. They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have." 48 So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. . . ."
     When we do the opposite, or don't participate because we are just not comfortable with what The Bible says or DENY WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS or just SKIP OVER WHAT WE DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH THAT IS bending, abandoning, adulterating, altering, contaminating, making crooked, decaying, defiling, distorting, doctoring or infecting The Word of God!  It is a . . .
Departure from the original or from what is "pure" or correct!  It is an "Alteration!"  It is "utterly broken!"  It is "corrupting" The Word which is complete and whole and correct and pure and making it what you and Man's Traditions want it to be and say!  (The word "corrupt" or "corruption" when used as a adjective literally means, "utterly broken."  "Something that was once WHOLE is NOT ANYMORE.")  SEE (above) for more definition of "corruption."
     John 1:1,2 (AMP) tells us, "In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself." 2 He was present originally with God,"  And in Revelation 19:11 (AMP) we see, "After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]!  The One Who was riding it was called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness)."  Jesus IS THE WORD!  AND THE WORD IS JESUS!  JESUS IS INCORRUPTIBLE AND THE BIBLE IS INCORRUPTIBLE!
     What The Bible says is Incorruptible!  And taking ANY ALTERNATE PATHS FROM WHAT GOD HAS SAID ABOUT A MATTER IS "ALTERING" AND MAKES WHAT IS WHOLE . . . BROKEN or CORRUPTIBLE!  We, as The Church should not be living life according to the culture that we are in or what the Traditions of Man carried on through generations have told us . . . INSTEAD OF DOING and SAYING WHAT THE WORD SAYS!  
     When The Church DOES NOT BELIEVE IN, PARTICIPATE IN, OR TEACH OR OPERATE OR WANT TO OPERATE IN WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS TO DO OR IGNORES OR ALTERS THE WORD TO FIT THEIR OWN LIKES OR COMFORTS . . . Then The Church is corrupt - ("A departure from the original or from what is pure or correct.")  It is "corrupt" because the People of God will not carry out the FULL WORD OF GOD AND ARE OPERATING IN PART BY THEIR OWN THOUGHTS, OPINIONS, AND DESIRES WHICH IS MAN'S TRADITIONS And Man's Traditions are what can void, nullify and cancel The Word of God!
     As you hold this Letter of Love to you in your hands, you have a decision to make don't you?  Will you continue to be led by Man's Traditions or is The Lord Jesus, Who Is The Word your Leader?  Will you continue to follow Man's Traditions or what The Word says?  Is The Bible and what He says your Commander and your Guide?  Will you continue following man and what Tradition and their thoughts have led you so far or will you do as your Father tells you to do and say what The Father says to say? (John 14:15, 21, 23-24)  I encourage you to follow The Word of God!  Follow what The Master says!  Receive what The Word says you are to have!  Stand against what He is against!  Live your life HOW HE says to!  If The Word says something is wrong . . . it's wrong!  DON'T COMPROMISE!  DON'T LIVE YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO MAN'S TRADITIONS!  You are a strong Believer in The Kingdom of God!  Stand for Him and His Word!  Live your precious life according to what The Word says!  WHATEVER THE BIBLE SAYS . . . DO IT, LIVE IT, SAY IT . . . BE LIKE HIM!  BE THE WORD IN THIS WORLD!  BE INCORRUPTIBLE . . . BE PURE!  The Lord loves you and so do we, very much!  Until Next Month . . .
