GETTING READY!
 
“. . . For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” Rev. 19:7
 
 
OPERATION:
How To Do Life
 
 
   
 
 
      Before we begin, I must first acknowledge something in my life.  What I am going to type out on the pages of this Monthly Teaching Letter to you, I am LEARNING and PRACTICING in my own life right now.  I am in “the fight of Faith” alongside of you and I am working within the “obstacles” and hurdles as you.  Hear my heart Beloved of God, I am working alongside of you in staying in The Secret Place of Peace.  I truly believe that the devil, the enemy of Father God and us is in an all out war against the People of God to keep us OUT OF The Secret Place of Peace!  So, HOW MUCH MORE IMPORTANT IS THIS TRUTH and ACTION NEEDED by The People of God!  This Truth is truly . . . HOW TO DO LIFE!
 

    Just a few things to bring to our remembrance about what we have laid a foundation upon the last couple of Months about this Place Called Secret are the following:
 

1.) We Have The Master’s Own Peace.  We Receive Jesus’ Peace When We Surrender Our Lives and All To Him.

 

2.) We CHOOSE Whether We Are Staying In The Place Of Peace Or NOT.

"Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]" John 14:27 (AMPC)

 

       John 14:27 tells us VERY CLEARLY that we receive and have Jesus’ Peace and that we control whether we are implementing and putting into work the benefits of what we possess, which is Jesus’ Peace.  The Word says, “. . . Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” John 14:27 (AMPC)   As I wrote to you in the very beginning . . . I AM SO IN SCHOOL WITH YOU CHURCH!  Just know that although I am called to teach The Word, I also am learning and will always be a student of The Word too!  Know that I am learning and teaching on the Truth of living in The Place Called PEACE!  Staying and not allowing myself to do the very things of John 14:27 DAILY . . . and MINUTE BY MINUTE right with you!  LET’S MASTER THIS TOGETHER!  SHOULDER TO SHOULDER . . . LIKE AN ARMY OF GOD SHOULD BE!  Hallelujah! . . . YES SIR!

 

3.) You And I Have To TRUST The Lord and His Word To Stay In PEACE.

 

You keep him in PERFECT PEACE whose mind is stayed on you, BECAUSE he TRUSTS in You. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isa. 26:3-4 (ESV)

 
 
 

"TRUST in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)

 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13 (NIV)

 

4.) You and I Have To Take Responsibility For and Take Charge Over What We Are Allowing Ourselves To Think.  What We Are Allowing Ourselves To Think About Is THE KEY FACET To Us Being In Peace Or Not.

 
 
 
 
 

Do not be ANXIOUS or WORRIED about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7 And THE PEACE OF GOD [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. 8 Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, WHATEVER IS RIGHT AND CONFIRMED BY GOD'S WORD, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, THINK CONTINUALLY ON THESE THINGS [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].” Philippians 4:6-8 (AMP)

 

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)

 
 
 
 
        Oh Beloved, this is where I want to be as I know you do too!  Being disciplined in Philippians 4:6-8 and 2 Corinthians 10:5!  The Lord has commanded us to take captive EVERY THOUGHT!  Not just the ones that we RECOGNIZE because we have that one thought a lot and decided to deal with it. (Although that is where we need to start!)  The Lord wants us to TAKE CAPTIVE EVERY THOUGHT!  He has said to THINK CONTINUALLY ON the good things of Philippians 4:8.  He has commanded us, “Do not be anxious or worried about anything.”  And He says to pray about everything.  He is telling us to CONTROL OUR MINDS!  The Lord is leading me to share with you a Word that He gave me five (5) years ago while I was praying in The Spirit in deep intercession.  I would encourage you to stop right now and pray in tongues to prepare yourself to receive this Word from The King.
 

“Keep God and The Kingdom on your mind!  For when the Kingdom of Darkness increases, you must stay focused on God’s Kingdom that you are operating within while here on Earth.  And how you will defeat the Kingdom of this World is through the renewing of your mind.  You must stay in focus of what you are allowing yourself to think about.  Control your thoughts or they will control your life, your walk and your destiny.  There is no one greater in this war to Me, than you!  Choose to think as I did when I walked the Earth.  Yes, the very things I tell you today are the things I operated in when I was there.  When opposition comes, and it will, you must learn this trait.  You must learn this and Master it!  Your mind and your thoughts will be what will win the fights and war to come.  For, as you are transforming from the inside, you will transform the environment around you.  Do not be afraid and do not waver, My Child.  Greater are you, for I live inside of you, than he that rules this World.  You’ve got the answers; all of them are inside of you.  Develop “The ME” in youDevelop HOW TO control your mind.  And in doing so, you will develop your victories and desires.  Hold on to Me and My Word!  CONCENTRATE!  CONCENTRATE!  CONCENTRATE!”

     


 
 
       I can tell you this; I had no idea how important this Word was when I received it from The Master.  Five years later I see it so much clearer.  The Master has told us in this Word some VITAL NECESSITIES to not only operate in The Kingdom of God, but also to be Victorious!  He has told us that we are to DO WHAT HE DID WHEN HE WAS HERE ON EARTH!  We have to recall that The Lord through all of the hardship and difficulties with His Disciples, the resistance of his own family and hometown, the heat of the Meetings He held, the demands that were daily put on Him, the public opposition of the Religious Leaders and Scholars in various towns who should have been celebrating Him, the demand of running a Full Time Evangelistic Ministry and all the while knowing that His final Sacrifice at Calvary was ahead of Him, Jesus NEVER SINNED!  The more I walk with The Lord, the more incredible I see this!  That meant that He had a decision to make every time the enemy brought a new “challenge” or “obstacle” His way.  The Bible says that He only did what The Father told Him to do and He only said what The Father told Him to say.
 

I have much to say about you and much to condemn, but I won't. For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful.” . . . 28 So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I am he. I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me. 29 And the one who sent me is with me—he has not deserted me. For I always do what pleases him.” John 8:26,28-29 (NLT)

 

    Jesus tells us here that He COULD HAVE said some things, but He chose not to because The Father had not said to.  Jesus said and did what The Father told Him to and Jesus did only what pleased The Father.  So, Jesus had a choice, didn’t He?  And where was that choice made?  The choices were made in His thoughts.  Jesus had to control his thoughts while here on Earth too!  He had to decide EVERY TIME He had a thought to either SAY IT or DO IT! . . . He had to make a decision with each thought . . . just like we are told to do Beloved of God!  Can you see HOW ENORMOUS it was for Jesus to have never sinned!  Can you see how He had to MAKE HIMSELF CONTROL HIS THOUGHTS!  If Jesus did not control His thoughts, then it would have resulted in Him SAYING or DOING something out of the order of Father God and His Words and Deeds to be done!  EXTRAORDINARY!

 

And that is what He is telling us to do Church!  He wants us to do what He did on Earth!

 
 
 
     I can almost hear “feathers ruffling” as you read this.  You and I and Jesus and all of Heaven already knows that we are going to miss it, that’s why we have Jesus!  This is The Good News!  When we do MISS IT, we have an Advocate and One Who when we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness! (1 John 1:9)  The Master is opening a curtain of Revelation from Heaven for us!  He is telling us HOW HE DID IT!  He is allowing us to know HOW HE DID LIFE ON EARTH . . . AND ACCOMPLISHED EVERY TASK and MISSION FROM FATHER!  HE IS TELLING US HOW HE COMPLETED HIS DESTINY . . . AND HOW WE CAN TOO! 
 

He Is Telling Us HOW TO

“Defeat the Kingdom of this World.”

Not let the enemy “control your life, your walk and your destiny.”

“Win the fights and war to come.”

“Transform the environment around you.”

Know “the answers; all of them are inside of you.”

“Develop your victories and desires.”

“CONCENTRATE! CONCENTRATE! CONCENTRATE!”

    

HE DID IT THROUGH CONTROLLING HIS THOUGHTS BRIDE OF CHRIST!  AND SINCE THE BRIDEGROOM DID LIFE THIS WAY . . . HE WANTS HIS BRIDE TO CARRY OUT HER DESTINY AND MISSION THE SAME WAY!  Glory To God!

 

 
 
       The Word that The Master has given us tells us that the fights and war to come are fought on The Battlefield of OUR MINDS!  This is HOW we change everything IN US and AROUND US!  And when we are not controlling what we are thinking on it leads us to the very things that John 14:27 tells us!
 

"Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]" John 14:27 (AMPC)
 
 
        If you and I are not taking our thoughts of trouble, fear, agitation, disturbance, intimidation, unsettledness and stopping them when they come, those thoughts will get in our hearts and overtake our peace that has been given by Jesus, Himself!  The very peace that He operated in while He was on Earth!  And why is that so important?  Because it takes you out of The Secret Place that we’ve been talking about for the last few Months! It’s very serious!  And it’s all in Psalm 91, the Chapter in The Bible that is about how to Stay Safe!  Let’s look at the Hebrew meanings of what it means to “Dwell in the Secret Place.”  In the Hebrew when you look up the first words of Psalm 91 which are,
 

“He who dwells in” (Strong’s #3427) Which is yashab.

Yashab means, abides, dwells, inhabits, lives, makes, married, marrying, PEACEFUL, REMAINS, RESIDES, RESIDENT, SETTLE(D), CONTINUES, EASE SELF, STAYS, wait, sit, stand.

“In the secret place” (Strong’s #5643) Which is cether.

Cether means A SHELTER, UNDER COVER, COVERT, DISGUISE, PROTECTION.

   
 
 
 
 
     When you and I dwell in the Secret Place called PEACEFUL, SETTLED, EASE OF SELF it makes us live in a Place of UNDERCOVER, DISGUISE, PROTECTION and truly we live in a COVERT STATUS on our Mission down here on Earth!  Praise The Lord!  If we stay in the Place of Peace (The Secret Place) we are in the Place of Protection.  AND WHERE DOES ALL OF THESE WONDERFUL BENEFITS BEGIN?  IT ALL BEGINS WITH OUR THOUGHTS! 
 
 

Let The Training Begin

 
 
 
 
 
       Do you have anything or area in your life that you know that you are to take steps to control?  I do.  And one thing that I am learning is that IF I’M NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO that area then it tends to have no control in it again.  When I am taking control of something that needs it I am taking responsibility for how it is and I am making decisions all throughout the day of what I will allow or not allow.  What I will accept and what I will not accept.  What I will let pass and what I say “no” to.  When I am doing these things in my life, I am controlling what needs to be controlled.  And when I am NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO that area of my life it results in consequences that I do not want.
 
       The Lord has commanded us to do something that I really don’t know if many Followers of Jesus Christ are doing.  And that is controlling the thoughts they think.  You and I need to do this and we are commanded to do this.  We are The Army of God and He has commanded us to THINK a Way that is like Him.  And as what The Bible calls The Last Days continue, we will need to do this more than we could ever imagine as we continue here on Earth!  Let’s get ourselves trained now!
 
       Let’s go back to what we talked about in Philippians 4:8 (AMP) and 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV).  In Philippians there is so much to get into, yet what we are going to focus on for this Month within this Book of The Bible are the “How TO’s” in verse 8.  “Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, WHATEVER IS RIGHT AND CONFIRMED BY GOD'S WORD, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, THINK CONTINUALLY ON THESE THINGS [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].”
 

God’s Homework

 
 
 
 
 
       Now, here is what I'm asking you and myself to do.  Think of a few memories, people, places or situations that would fall within what The Bible tells us is true, honorable, worthy of respect, right and confirmed by God’s Word, admirable, excellent, worthy of praise.  If you need to write them down, do so to help you remember what the thoughts are.  Next, intentionally you and I are to PURPOSEFULLY THINK ON THESE IMAGES in our minds.  Of course, we all have jobs, duties, driving and so many other things that we must think about while doing.  Yet, when we are NOT doing things that require focus, purposefully go to one of those chosen thoughts or images and make yourself think on them.  This will take effort and concentration, which is EXACTLY what The Lord said to do!  CONCENTRATE!  CONCENTRATE!  CONCENTRATE!
 
        Second thing I am asking you to do with me is to begin to recognize and CAST DOWN IMAGES.  These are Thoughts or Images that exalts themselves against God and His Word.  If you have a thought or image that comes to your mind that is sin, or troubling, anything that is against The Word of God, take control of that thought!  You can say, “I don’t take that thought.”  “I rebuke that thought.”  And then say what God says about it.
 
     For example.  Let's say that you just got paid and you are writing out your Tithe and Offering check and you have the thought come to you, If you give all of that how are you going to get that new outfit?  Immediately recognize that that thought was not pure, honorable, right and against God's Word. (Philippians 4:9 and 2 Corinthians 10:5)  You could say out loud once you recognize it, "I rebuke that thought and you satan!"  The Word says, "Bring the whole tithe into the store house." (Malachi 3:10)  When you do this you have just done 2 Corinthians 10:5!  You cast down the imagination (thought) that exalted itself against The Word of God and then you brought that thought into the obedience of Christ!

 

These Are Your Key Scriptures
To Lean On !
 
 

Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, WHATEVER IS RIGHT AND CONFIRMED BY GOD'S WORD, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, THINK CONTINUALLY ON THESE THINGS [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].” Philippians 4:8 (AMP)

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV)


       And still yet the MOST IMPORTANT action you can do is to get your life right with God!  If you have never given your life over to God or if you have and have walked away from Him or have been living in sin away from him . . . it’s time Friend!  It’s TIME to give Him your all!  He gave His All . . . and He wants yours! You can trust Him!  He is Safe!  He is Trustworthy!  And He Loves you more Than You Can Even Hope Or Imagine!  Make the decision right now!  Just say a prayer like below and mean it with everything in you!

 

“Jesus, I stop right now and I make the decision to give You my life entirely.  I surrender to You Jesus!  I leave my past and my sins and I ask You to forgive me of them.  Please come into my life and change it and do something with it.  I make You, Jesus, The Lord of my life.  I will follow you, all the days of my life from this point on.  Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Power in Jesus Name!”

It’s That Time Of ELUL - It Is Bath Time!

 
       We are blessed to be in the very crucial and intimate time on God’s Calendar called ELUL which began on Sunday, 12 August 2018 and will end on 09 september 2018.  ELUL means “to search” and “to repent.”  It is also known as “The Month of Repentance,” “The Month of Mercy” and “The Month of Forgiveness.”  The letters of E-L-U-L can be understood as an acronym for the Hebrew verse Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li--"I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine." (Song of Solomon 6:3)  During this time of year we are to reflect deeply and intimately on what we have done wrong in the past year and ask God to forgive us.  We are also to search ourselves and make decisions to do the sometimes difficult act of granting forgiveness to others and asking for forgiveness from others also.  ELUL is the time when one searches one’s heart and draws close to God.
 
       ELUL is also the Time of Year when Bride's prepare themselves for their Wedding Day all over the World!  Special cleaning of the Brides, Treatments and Bridal Preparations are performed by Brides at this specific Time of the Year.  ELUL is when The Bride of Christ is to CLEAN HERSELF for Her Bridegroom, Jesus too!  The Church, The Bride is to REPENT and clean Herself during the Time of ELUL.  Jesus, The Bridegroom is coming for a Bride without a Spot or Blemish!  And the ONLY WAY to get clean and bathe Church is to Repent!  "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9 (KJV))
